About the Tiger Cave Temple
Wat Tham Suea, which in English means the Tiger Cave Temple, is the major tourist attraction near to Krabi Town. Wat Tham Suea is a temple of three parts. Near the entrance to the temple there are several large religious buildings and some impressive Buddha statues. These are not, however, what most visitors come to see.
The major point of interest at Wat Tham Suea is the hilltop shrine. The only way to get to the hilltop shrine is to climb 1,237 steps. Some of the steps are very high compared to a normal staircase and it takes a serious effort to get to the top. Bring water with you as there is none available on the staircase or at the shrine at the top, and take the stairs at an easy pace stopping frequently as the the walk up is very hard work.
The other major point of the interest at Wat Tham Suea are the caves after which the temple is named. A shorter walk than to the hilltop shrine is required to reach a small valley with a number of caves, many of which have shrines instead. According to legend a tiger used to roam around this valley.
