Spectacular and worth the time to appreciate close and from afar
Nov 2019 • Family
This is the biggest temple in Krabi town and you have to appreciate its beauty. It is free to look around / go inside. It is in the town area so if you are staying at one of the resorts like we were, it takes a bit of time and a slightly pricey taxi / Grab to get here.

Lovely pictures to be had if you like to take photographs. You can get to the temple from two sides; on one side you approach the temple at the “hill” to the side and the other is to walk up the steps leading up to the temple. The view from the bottom of the steps looking up at the temple is very nice. There is architecture and art to appreciate both inside and outside the temple.

kitsch as kitsch can
Feb 2020
if you like it new and colorful, you will love this temple. it's all new, with nothing of value, but with a hell of a kitschy painting inside. it is big, on the outside in reconstruction, and maybe a funny place for some pictures. that's all.

Largest Temple within Krabi town!
Mar 2019
Wat Kaew Korawaram, also known simply as Wat Kaew, is the largest Buddhist temple within Krabi Town and one of the most prestigious in the entire region. It's Located on a hill overlooking Krabi downtown, it is accessible via an entrance plaza and a massive staircase with nāga sculptures. It is one of the largest temples in Krabi, the temple dates back to 1887, Monks who arrived first to this district, established a dwelling which would become Wat Kaew Korawaram. The centre of Wat Kaew (opposite the actual temple) is Now Krabi Contemporary Art Museum. White color, dark blue painted roofs and the vast yards are the main characteristics of the temple. Inside the main hall there's a golden sitting Buddha in Bhumisparsha Mudra position in a peaceful space. I went to the temple from Ao nang by a motorbike, it took about 40 minutes riding through an amazing & charming road. Going to the temple by motorbike is highly recommended.

I spent over an hour here watching the cute kittens plying with the interior of the temple and loved it. There was also a dog visiting for some time. The time spent was really worth it to cool down and just meditate for some time.

White Wat

We went on Jan 27th and it's currently covered in scaffolding. We looked inside but the outside doesn't look very good at the moment.

Beautiful temple

This white is different than others we have seen in Thailand. The outside color, almost entirely white sets it aside from the others and was a great viewing. Sadly we only saw the outside.

Nestled in the heart of Krabi Town is this beautiful White Temple

We spent almost 30 minutes here with our 10 year old and 13 year old and we all enjoyed the stroll and the stillness, we soaked it up for ten minutes sitting in the shade of the temple

The inner temple was so well adorned

There is a souvenir shop and the monks sell some items too, their English wasn’t the best, but better than my Thai, and after the souvenir shop owner assisted we managed to purchase a ceramic holy Rooster souvenir from the monks

Well worth a visit, just a little disappointed at the time we were there that there was not a monk in the temple to offer blessings

A must see if in the area

Pretty temple
Dec 2019 • Couples
Right in the heart of Krabi Town this temple gives a quiet atmosphere as you climb the groups of 8 stairs to the top. If stairs arent youre thing then at the top there is a road and car park where some tour busses will stop.
Temple is pristine and good photos can be had inside. Look out for the higher level of the inside frescoes above the door!
