Stunning Buddhist complex with a number of temples and areas to admire. Unfortunately our guide only took us to the lower temples and we missed out on the ones on the hillside. However, it was still beautiful, fine Thai architecture. Despite the fact that it is not on the usual tourist beaten path, it’s well worth a visit if you have time to spare or if your traveling from krabi to Phuket or vice versa.

A 90 minute drive from Khoa Lak and it’s worth it. Although the temple is not the best it’s location and views make up for it. It was built in the late 1980s so reasonably modern in terms of historical sites.

If you are fit enough and can handle steps it’s worth the effort to get closer and see the golden giant Buddha.

came here for a day trip from Khao Lak.

First temple is the Thai temple located on the hill top, have to walk up the stairs to go to the top, there is a Chedi and surround by other buddhas on the base of the complex.

From there, one can see the surrounding area, there is a giant size Buddha and also Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy).

Very interesting place to spend a few hours wondering around to take photos and enjoy the scenery.

Wat Bang Riang is a spectacular Temple complex on top of Khao Lan Mountain in Thap Put which is in Phang Nga Province and it is well worth the trip.

Towards the top of the mountain you will come across a huge car park, stop here for some photos but then carry on driving to the top where there is another car park and a coffee shop. From here you can explore everything at Wat Bang Riang.

Wat Bang Riang’s proper name is Wat Rat Upatam. Once you walk up to the beautiful Pagoda called Chedi Phutthathambanlue walk over to the right for some magnificent views out over the countryside of Kwan Yin the Chinese Goddess of Compassion and further in the distance Phra Nak Prok a beautiful large Golden Buddha.

There is a 20baht entrance fee to enter the Pagoda which is beautiful. You can also walk down the stairs to see the above statues close up.

To visit Wat Bang Riang from Phuket is about a 2 hour drive and 1.5 hours from Khao Lak.

A slow steep drive to the car park gets you right at the entrance that has dragons the whole length of the driveway leading up to the Temple.
The 20 Baht entry fee is well worth it, the view overlooking the large statues on the hillside is spectacular.
Inside the Temple it is as you would expect with intricate carvings, gold and very brightly coloured and the sense of calm and tranquility.
Do remember the dress code but should you forget, they supply you with a pair of rather large pants!
Well worth a visit.
