It is the one and only temple of Koh Tao. Buddhism is practised and taught, and is also a residing place for monks.
Wat Koh Tao lies in the hilly terrain between Sairee and Mae Haad. It was constructed by a Thai Buddhist monk in 1977. Monks reside here and impart the theoretical and practical knowledge of Buddhism to anyone who is interested. A few points to remember when you visit this place are - remove your hat and shoes, speak softly, switch off your phone, don't touch the statue.
