History


Description

The Kaw Gon Cave is the most overwhelming of all cave temples in the area. It is not simply a natural cave with numerous statues, the cave walls were almost completely covered by paintings and reliefs. Row over rows of small buddhas along the wall. You either hate it or love it.
