Many religious organizations have buildings and temples sacred to them, and often these architectural creations are truly awe-inspiring. From the Sistine Chapel in Rome to Todai Temple in Nara City, there are numerous examples of marvels of human devotion.

And the Kuha Karuhas pavilion certainly ranks among the most marvelous we’ve seen.

While the temple is actually the smallest in Thailand, its unique location in Phraya Nakhon Cave in Khao Sam Roi Yot, a national park in Thailand, more than makes up for its stature.

The pavilion, built in 1890, is situated so that sunlight coming through the collapsed roof of the cave shines directly on it. The darkness of the cave mixed with the beauty of the structure and the ethereal atmosphere of the sunlight creates a truly astounding image.

Phraya Nakhon cave was actually a special place for the kings of Thailand before the construction of the pavilion. In fact, it was in preparation of King Chulalongkorn’s visit that the Kuha Karuhas pavilion was built.
