Wat Tham Khuha Sawan temple is located near the city of Khong Chiam 80 kilometers east of the city of Ubon Ratchathani. It was built in 1978 by Luang Pho Kam Khaning Chula Mani and served as the revered monk's residence and meditation spot for his entire life. His remains, in perfect condition, are in a glass coffin in the temple's cave.

The first element you notice when you arrive at Wat Tham Khuha Sawan is its huge gong. It must be said that the village of gong-makers is on the road between the temple and Ubon Ratchathani. The Tham Khuha Sawan cave located on the edge of a temple cliff houses a row of seated Buddhas and a reclining Buddha and then we come to the room with the coffin of the revered monk who founded the temple. Other elements of the temple include a white Ubosot with beautiful architecture and the Phra Dhamma Chedi Sri Trai Phum, whose interior has an image of Buddha in the meditation posture. At the edge of the temple cliff, there is a viewpoint over the Mekong River from which one can see the houses of Khong Chiam and those opposite on the Lao side. It is a good place to watch the sunrise.

How to get to Wat Tham Khuha Sawan ?

To come to the temple Wat Tham Khuha Sawan it is better to be transported. From Ubon Ratchathani city, count a a little more than 1-hour drive. AS for me, the best option is to come here and spend the night in Khong Chiam (at Tohsang Heritage if you want to treat yourself ;)) because there are many interesting things to see in this part of the province. I am thinking in particular of the Wat Sirindhorn Wararam and its superb fluorescent paintings that light up the night. But there are other places to discover in the area! From Khong Chiam, Wat Tham Khuha Sawan Temple is only a 10-minute drive.
