The small Wat Sila Ngu temple also known as Wat Ratchathammaram is located at the top of Hua Thanon beach in the south of Koh Samui. Accessible by a staircase from the beach or by a door from the road, it is a still little known by tourists Buddhist temple and rarely mentioned in guide books yet. The stone snake pagoda, ''Phrataht Hin Ngoo'', its nickname, hosts a beautiful red ordination hall with beautiful sculptures in relief on the exterior and interior walls.

Wat Sila Ngu is less than 2 kilometers from the famous Hin Ta Hin Yai rocks so why not come just before or after?
