Wat Kathu, or Kathu temple, is a not very well known landmark from tourists, but local photographers know very well how beautiful it is. This Buddhist temple is not far from Patong, but because it stands away from the main road, most people don’t even consider visiting it.
Wat Kathu is not very big either, but it certainly has a lot of colourful charm and is beautifully decorated. It is used as a background for wedding photographies in traditional Thai costumes, making it even more attractive for travellers to visit.
The temple, consisting of several small pavilions, plays an important part in the annual Kathu festival which usually occurs in July each year.
