Secret Buddha Garden, also known as Magic Garden and Heaven’s Garden, or Tarnim Magic Garden, is a private sculpture park atop Pom Mountain (also called Khun Nim Peak), one of the highest peaks on the island of Ko Samui in Surat Thani Province, Thailand.

This is not a temple, but rather the work of retired durian farmer Khun Nim Thongsuk. He began building it in 1976, at the age of 77, and continued to work on the garden until his death at the age of 91. He was then buried on the grounds of the garden.
