Located in Surat Thani province in Koh Samui, the Secret Buddha Garden is a private sculpture park set atop one of the highest peaks on the island. Also called the ‘Heaven's Garden’ or the ‘Magic Garden’, it was created by Nim Thongsuk, an old fruit farmer, who began building the garden in 1976 at his family's land and continued building it up until his death. Set amidst lush jungle foliage, there are waterfalls and streams along with statues of Buddha hidden in plain site.
The main highlight of the Secret Buddha Garden is the group of angel and musician statues. Apart from this, there are statues depicting different aspects of Thai Buddhism, along with snakes, birds, and other animals. The verdant garden also houses the statue of Nim Thongsuk's parents and his own tomb. Since the Secret Buddha Garden is nestled atop a hill, the view from the garden and the way leading upto it is stunning.
