:: Tham Sua Kao Kaeo Ao Luk Tanu Monastery

Tam Sua means Tiger Cave. Legend says that a large tiger once lived here, and hence the name. The monastery is situated in Ban Tam Sua of Tambon Krabi Noy, 9 kilometers from Krabi Town. The tiger is said to have roamed the foothills of the Ao Luk Tanu Mountains, also called Kao Kaeo. Inside the cave are natural rock impressions of tiger paws.


There are grand huge trees, hundreds of years old, growing in a fold of Kao Kiriwohng Mountains that surrounds the monastery. Among the best known are Ko Tan (Heavenly Musicians), Lod (Passing Through), Chang Kaeo (Crystal Elephant), Luk Tanu (Arrow), and Pra (Monk's). Apart from the monastery, this area holds special interest for archaeologists – many stone tools, pottery shards, and unfired clay holy images have been found, dating from prehistoric to historic times.
