Wat Thum Seua Photo Gallery 1

Here is a photo gallery from Wat Tum Sua (Thamseua, Thumsua, Tum Suea), our home temple. It really is a beautiful place. Ajarn Jumnien is intent on making this the top Buddhist temple in the area – and right now you would have to go to Nakhon si Thammarat to find one as popular as this temple. More and more people come here every year.

Nearly all of our amulets come from this temple – so, order one if you’d like – many people forget to purchase some while they visit – and then order here. Enjoy the photos…

Top of the nearly 300m high hill above Wat Tum Sua. There are steps to climb up, and now there are 1,256 stairs to the top. Bring water and go after 3pm for best experience. Water at the top – but bring a bottle to refill, the cups are not so clean.

At night some excellent photos can be taken.
Bring a flashlight, no lights on the steps.

Yes, it’s real.

If you have some time while you are in southern Thailand, you really should stop and visit Wat Tham Seua just outside Krabi town in Krabi Noi. There are so many things to see and take photos of – experience, you will be very happy you did. There are monkeys at this temple and they are usually well behaved.
