“The main vihara or the sanctum sanctorum is inside a small shallow limestone cave. Both sides are lined by cells like caves which are called monastic cells or kutis. ”

Tiger Cave Krabi is located about 3 kms from Krabi Town. Inside the cave there are what appear to be tiger paw prints in the stone. The surrounding area is covered with large trees hundreds of years old, particularly in the Khiriwong Valley.  It had to be the biggest buttressed trunk of any tropical tree I had ever seen anywhere in the world. Mountains are on all sides and there are smaller caves in great number. Aside from being the site of a meditation center, it is also a place of archaeological and historical interest. Stone tools, pottery remains, and the mold for making Buddha footprints have been found in excavations.

the temple has two short stairways that then merges leading to one single stairway leading to the summit, amassing to a total number of 1272 small steps. another set of stairways lead to a second limestone cave. Summit to the temple is 600 meters (1,968 feet). monkeys often roam around the stairs and temple.
