Tham Khao Noi Temple : Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Wat Tham Khao Noi is a sacred Anam-Nigaya Buddhist temple located near ontop of a Noi hill in Ta Mueang District. The temple is best known for its Chinese-influenced architecture which sees from its chedi, ordination hall and the surrounding buildings. The terrace on the top platform also gets you a panoramic view of this small town.

Tham Khao Noi Temple located adjacent to one another but in separate compounds, these two temples are visually interesting structures, each featuring distinctly Chinese designs that differ from standard Thai temples.

Wat Tham Seua, or Tiger Cave Temple, is especially notable for its giant Buddha icon which sits partially enclosed in a magnificent half-dome structure.

The temples sit on hills and visitors who make the walk to the top of either hill are rewarded with some excellent views over the River Kwai. There are caves at the site with Buddha images located within.
