Khram Detailed Information
Specific Wreck Details




Scuba Diving Pattaya - Dive Pattaya - Dive Thailand - Khram Wreck

After serving her crews since the second "War to end all wars", the HMS Khram, a medium size landing ship, was sunk just 300 meters off the coast of Bamboo Island (Koh Phai) on January 30th 2003. The aging vessel, acquired by the Thai Navy in 1962, saw the last light of day amidst naval ceremonies as it slowly sank beneath the water. It will now begin its new life as an artificial reef.

PATTAYA WRECKS - HMS KHRAM

Pattaya City and Navy officials have worked closely on the project since General Chavalit Yongchaiyuth; Minister Of Defense signed the documents approving the sinking of the ship on February 26, 2002, one year before the actual sinking.On January 30th of 2003, the Royal Thai Navy (RTN) and Pattaya City management began organising the sinking ceremony for the HMS Khram. Its designated resting place, near Bamboo Island, is under the control of the RTN.

PATTAYA WRECKS - HMS KHRAM

Vice Admiral Somjai Watanyothin, deputy commander in chief of the Royal Thai Fleet said, " The sinking of the HMS Khram for the purpose of creating an underwater preservation park is the first in Thailand. We hope the ship will encourage growth and occupation of marine animals. To sink the ship we created large holes so the water would slowly flow into the stern of the ship and it would gradually sink to the bottom in a vertical manner. The way the ship is built and the method in which it was subk means there should not be any problems with it shifting"

The Navy has placed warning signs around the area to warn fishermen and commercial ships of the wreck as to avoid any accidents. A public relations campaign for divers will inform them of this new diving site not far from Koh Larn Island.

"The Royal Thai Navy will safeguard the area via regular patrols to ensure it stays a safe haven for marine life in Thailand," said the Vice Admiral.The HMS Khram was received from Seattle, Washington in the USA under a naval assistance project and arrived in Thailand September 11th, 1962. The vessel is classed as a medium sized landing vessel; 61.5 meters long, 10.35 meters wide.

PATTAYA WRECKS - HMS KHRAM

The ship was active in World War II before arriving in Thailand. The aging vessel became increasingly un-seaworthy and the rising cost of constant repair prompted the decision by the Ministry Of defense to lay the vessel to rest for the benefit of the environment.

It now lies on the seabed, 300 meters off Bamboo Island at latitude 12 degrees 55 minutes north (of the equatot) anf longitude 100 degrees 41 minutes 26 seconds east (of Greenwich).
