Wat Tham Suea, situated in Kanchanaburi, is a Buddhist temple which stands out of all the other temples in Thailand as it has an intricate cave passage. The meaning of the name Wat Tham Suea is tiger cave temple. The naming of the temple runs back to the time of 1960s. A monk named Jumnean Seelasettho has chosen this cave as an ideal place for his meditation. Then he has spotted tigers roaming around the cave. Hence the temple that was built around the cave was named Tiger Cave Temple.
The temple Wat Tham Suea has a meditation centre and it is flocked with fellow devotees. The temple complex is also a place of archaeological and historical value as artifacts such as stone tools, pottery remains and Buddha’s footprint crafting molds are found from the cave.

The view from the top is simply breathtaking as it offers a 360 degree view of the area. Along the way to the top of the temple you will spot monkey families around the stairs.
