Mummified Monk, Ko Samui: 17 reviews and 33 photos

  Mummified monk

Well-preserved, mummified body of the monk named Loung Por Ruam. He was placed here 25 years ago and looks remarkably good.

Step in this Wat for a few minutes and take a good look at this mummy. This is the first mummy I have ever seen that wears sunglasses.... It's very impressive though.

Admission to the temple is free, but guests are reminded to dress in modest clothing and remove shoes before entering.

Address: Wat Khunaram
Directions: On the 4169 ring road between Lamai and Chaweng.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
