Intro Image
History
 
Wat Tham Khao Noi (“Temple of the Small Mountain”), also known as Chua Long Son, is a Chinese-style temple that’s just as captivating as its neighbour but draws fewer visitors. Set to soothing Buddhist music, the ground-floor hall shelters a dozen images of historic Chinese monks and other iconic figures. Wander further back to find stairways draped in frangipani and the twisting bodies of dragons.
Highlights
 
At the top, a Chinese-style pagoda stands almost as tall as the orange pagoda at Wat Tham Sua, located no more than 10 metres away. Dizzying spiral staircases lead to octagon-shaped rooms with striking ceramic mosaics depicting prominent figures of Chinese Mahayana Buddhism, including a bearded Bodhidharma, the first Zen patriarch. Backed by fire and rainbows, thousands of miniature Buddha images also decorates the walls. Those making it the top are treated to an easterly view of the river and the pagodas and spires of Wat Tham Sua to the south. Stroll to the west side for a vantage of cows and agricultural fields stretching on to mountains. Wat Tham Sua and Wat Tham Khao Noi are located side by side, 16 km south of downtown Kanchanaburi and four kilometres south of Wat Ban Tham on the west side of the Mae Khlong River. To get here, follow the directions in the Wat Ban Tham listing and continue south until you see the twin pagodas. You’ll need to cut through Khao Noi village to reach the car parks; there are a few ways to do this and the constant sight of the pagodas make it easy.
