There are many interesting temples to explore on the island of Koh Phangan. This gallery features several photos I captured at various sites around the island.

  1. Interesting website! However in this article there are a few inaccuracies:

    “Disco buddha.” Looks like the upper body of a monk to me.
    “Stone monument on Koh Phangan.” Looks like Bai Sema (boundary stone) to me.
    “Wat Chaloklum’s silver adornments.” I have seen such adornments in many places, it’s usually mirrors.
