Wat Wanararm offers a peaceful and colorful setting where you can meditate or marvel at numerous Buddha statues and traditional architecture. The temple complex contains a landscaped garden with a fish pond, little pagodas, and prayer wheels, with eight stupas each representing a different Buddhist quality. The site also features a sizable white marble statue of the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin, placed against the rocky hillside as if it's been carved directly out of it. Follow the path behind the statue to go up the hill and visit caves used for meditation. Before you visit Langkawi, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • You will need a car or taxi to arrive here. Fairly interesting temple and provides some good photography.

  • We get there after sunset , almost dark. But it was very quiet and calm place we and the dogs were the only guests ☺️😅
  • Poorly maintained, had to deal with many dogs. Timing not updated properly online. From neighborhood, got to know that this temple gets closed by 5pm.
