Invitingly beautiful and a must visit while on a trip to Koh Samui, the Secret Buddha Garden is one of the
most important tourist attractions of of the island. The garden which was built by a Samuian fruit farmer
around the year 1976 called Nim Thongsuk, who was 77 years old when he started building the garden. This
has also resulted in the place being fondly known as Uncle Nimm's Garden.
The garden, which is surrounded by jungles and rocky hills, is slightly difficult to reach, which, however,
is not considered to be much of a hindrance for tourists on a holiday in Koh Samui. A number of tours are
conducted in the area, which covers a number of other nearby tourist attractions of Ko Samui as well. The
entirety of the tour takes around 2 hours if started from the Lamai Temple and is an extremely enjoyable ride.
Perhaps another important attraction on the route to the Secret Buddha Garden is the highest point on the
island, which overlooks some of the most spectacular sceneries surrounding the region. The entire garden is
adorned with sculptures and structures depicting both humans, in various poses, as well as various deities.
