About Tiger Cave Temple

Krabi Tiger Cave Temple is not an old temple. Having been founded only in the late 1970s by Abbot Luang Por Chamnean Srilasatheto, who came to meditate in a cave here. At that time, this area was covered in thick jungle, and a tiger entered the cave. The tiger, however, did not harm the abbot, prompting him to regard this as a sacred spot.

Although this is one of the most popular Krabi attractions, a degree of physical fitness is required to visit the Krabi Tiger Cave Temple.

The site is only a few kilometers outside of Krabi Town and easily reached on an excursion with Sofitel Krabi, but the shrine itself is on top of a small mountain. A climb of 1,260 stairs is required, with some stair risers being more than 30 cm high. The top of the stairs is at an elevation of 278 meters, and the view is gorgeous enough to take away what remains of your breath.
