Wat Chalong Temple - Review

Wats are Buddhist Temples that are important and sacred places for the Buddhists in Thailand. The Wat Chalong is a very beautiful temple of this sort and is considered to be the most important of the 29 that exist in Phuket.

This temple has a sharp and tall roof and typical Thai Buddhist architecture. It is a gorgeous site but entering it will make you realize its importance as a religious place. Calm and serene, it instills a sort of peace in every soul. Surrounded by greenery and full of intricately designed serene interiors it is an important place for both the tourists and the locals. There is also a market not far from there, in which all the profits from the shops go to the temple. If you have 3 days in Phuket, this Buddhist Temple is a must in your itinerary.

Wat Chalong Temple, Phuket Reviews

  • Just another place with compulsory visit if you are going to Phuket. A fabulous demonstration of the Thai Art. If the external architecture scenery could bring you up to admiration, it is nothing regarding what you can find indoor any these temples. The smallest detail is absolutely beautiful and the association of all these chiseling become a delight and enchantment. The most impressive will be to discover that each temples are fully unique generating an incredible diversity on a same area. We have already scheduled to visit again this place considering that it was too much for an only one visit.

  • The temple is very very grand and nicely maintained. A great place for photos.... Occasionally you will see locals taking wedding photo there. Accordingly it's famous place for wedding photos shooting... And... O, I enjoy the fire crackers by the locals.... Remember to wear appropriately when going.

  • Beautiful temple and the Interior of the temples are really amazing and eye-catching. Wat Chalong temple located in Old phuket town and tour operators normally cover this place in Phuket Full Day tour. Must take camera you have many opportunities to take good pictures. There is no entrance fee in the temple.

  • The place is a flea market with a few beautiful temples in between. Tourists setting off fireworks was a disaster as well. Make sure to take your shoes off before entering a temple, and don’t touch any Buddha statues— it’s not polite (there are some signs to help with proper temple etiquette). The view from the top of the main temple is beautiful, you can see the big Buddha on the horizon as well. Remember that when you order a car (use grab app), they cannot enter so meet them at the front street. Nice way to kill a few hours.

  • I'm not really clued up on temple etc but I found the temple to be very peaceful!! I can't describe how I felt or why I had a sense of calmness? I would definitely recommend anybody to see the temple🙏
