TEMPEL LAMAI KOH SAMUI

yoga_retreat_koh_samui_lamai_tempel

Wat Lamai is a temple (wat) and is the hub of social gatherings in Koh Samui. Here is where locals will gather for weddings, funerals, and religious holidays, but it also hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Many of which will last for over one week and are worth attending if you are on Koh Samui at the right time.

Events hosted here include food, cinema, games, and concerts. Spending some time here will give you a real feel for local celebration what it feels like to really experience ‘The Land of Smiles’.

Guarding the entrance to the temple are two yaks, but keep your eyes open as you enter the grounds for all sorts of sculptures that you might otherwise miss.

Next to Wat Lamai, you’ll find the Cultural Hall – home to a variety of folklore objects from Koh Samui before tourism took over. Here you can see ancient bicycles, dried pufferfish, swords, and a 2000-year-old ceremonial drum that was discovered in Lamai.

The monks who take care of the grounds welcome donations of dog and cat food so that they can more easily feed the strays who wander here.
