Experience of Local Culture and Worship.
Wat Suwan Khuha is often simply referred to, by locals,
as Wat Tham meaning temple cave.
This Wat is very impressive and quite unusual as it was
built inside a limestone mountain, or karst, containing
numerous caves of various sizes.
largest (and lowest) of the caves measures 20m by 40m,
and serves as the main entrance to the Wat. This
particular cave is called Tham Yai (big cave) and
contains one of the highlights of the Wat - a beautiful
15m Reclining Budda. The cave is decorated throughout
it's length with various sized tiles of Lai Kram and
Benjarong, which are typical Thai art forms.
