About Wat Chalong Temple, Phuket

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The festival is slowly starting. Official beginning at Feb 14. Best time to visit is now. Magical wonder world.

  • Beautiful and large Buddhist Temple complex at the Phuket island. Tourist attraction, but also a popular religious destination for Budda believers. The main temple is an impressive one, with panoramic view of the area, which have beautiful nature.

  • Go every time when in Thailand. Lovely country lovely people. Come many time "Happy Thai day's" 😎🤗
