Looks a lot like Sanctuary of Truth, but a lot smaller. Is still very nice place to come & see on Samui.

This temple may look like many others from the road but it is really worth a quick visit as the beautiful red clay sculptures are of a rarely seen level of quality. The whole place is quiet and beautiful.

Another interesting temple. It’s a long walk up or take a moped or car - easy parking - to the top. 20baht to enter. A good view of the east side of the island. You’ll spend 20 to 30 minutes there at most.

All made in red terracotta, so peaceful and near the sea. There's also a cemetery near by with a beautiful gold temple, and a pool with lotus flowers

This was one of the nicest temples we have visited in thailand, we came at sunset and the view from the platform by the ocean was amazing, the temple building itself is a bright terracotta colour. Lovely place to visit.
