Le Wat Tham Phuwa

All the versions of this article:


A Chasm

This small temple-cave, beautifully decorated with stalactites and stalagmites, is long renowned as a place of retreat and meditation.
The cave, main element of the site, is formed by the collapse of the vault of a karstic cavity due to the dissolution of the limestone layers by the rainwater. The stalagmites and the stalactites are still in formation. The mouth caused by the collapse of a part of the vault provides a sweet and pleasant illumination. A small artificial waterfall decorates the main room.
