General description: Wat Plai Laem Temple

Wat Plai Laem Temple in Koh Samui, Thailand, is a Buddhist sacred place. The focal point of the temple visible even from a longer distance is the statue of Guanyin who, in Buddhist beliefs, is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. The goddess is thought to be the guardian of all living beings.

The place will be suitable for people of all ages, and especially for the enthusiasts of architectural gems. Wat Plai Laem Temple is still an active place where it is possible to observe numerous devotees visiting the temple and praying on a daily basis. The temple is situated in a picturesque environment, as it is surrounded by a lake bustling with life, as there are numerous species of fish that can be observed through the surface of water.

Apart from the main statue of Guanyin, there are numerous small sculptures of Buddha scattered around the area. Even though the temple is fairly new, the technique that was used during its construction is, in fact, an ancient ones.
