“Buddhadasa Bhikkhus philosophy is universal in nature. It's the combination of Zen, Taoist and Christian elements with the Theravada Buddhism. The temple itself is nothing but a combination of natural sandy grounds and rocks, dotted with trees. There are no elaborate stupas and chapels like other temples, only a place that keeps one in truly in tune with nature.”

Better known as Suan Mok,  Suan Moks founder, the late Bhikkhu Buddhadhasa, was highly respected both locally and internationally. His back to basics form of Buddhism, mirroring that led by the Buddha earliest disciples more than 2,500 years ago, attracted many Buddhist monks and lay meditators from Europe, North and South America, Australia and Japan. The enclave is devoid of extravagant ceremonial and elaborated chapels. The forest tranquility is ideal for a life of contemplation.

This teple is located at the forest, those who seek to realign their selves this place is good for you as it is near to the nature and is good for meditation for being quiet of the place.

  • This 150 acre forest temple is located beside Highway 41 some 50 kilometres north of the provincial capital.
  • Admission to the temple is free but, of course, donations are gratefully accepted. Mediation retreat cost 120 Baht per day for ten days. There is not advanced booking for the retreat.
