You may have seen already the incredible shrine that was erected on the main road between Bophut and Chaweng, and wondered what exactly it is, and even where it came from. This shrine was an offering of Khun Chomchoke Karntapicharn, a local businessman, who wanted to provide the shrine to the public on Samui, to worship.
The majestic statue stands proudly along the roadside, and invites everyone to stop and hold, for a time of spiritual commitment. For those visiting the island, it provides an inspirational site to observe. The shrine is one more addition to the diverse culture on Koh Samui and shows the unparalleled traditional commitment of the local people.
