Wat Khao Suwan Pradit

Wat Khao Suwan Pradit

Wat Khao Suwan Pradit was home to another famous monk of the South. Phra Kru Suwan Praditkan or Luang Phor Choi lived here and had this temple restored. His remains are kept in a glass coffin at the foot of the hill. On the top of the hill is a chedi which houses relics of Lord Buddha which were brought here from Chiang Mai. The temple also offers a great view over the bay and the nearby islands. A little bit further along the beach is the point from where the ferries to Ko Samui and Ko Pha-ngan departs.
