Ao Noi Caves

Caves and CavernsTham Phra Nawn (Sleeping Buddha Cave) is accessible via a concrete trail that leads up and around the side of the hill.

The craggy limestone mountain shelters the temple from the coast and contains a locally famous cave temple, providing scenic views of Ao Khan Kradai and the foothills beyond while a dramatic nine-headed naga protects the temple’s exterior.

Inside the cave is a small cavern leading to a larger one that contains the eponymous reclining Buddha.

The temple grounds are forested with a variety of fruit trees (pomegranate, mango, jackfruit and rose apple) and a lotus pond filled with ravenous fish, eager to be feed by merit-makers.
