  • This place was very beautiful. It’s a cultural place to be careful on what to wear. It’s free entry and certainly worth a visit. We got a taxi as it was cheaper than booking a tour.

  • This temple is worth visiting if you're in Phuket. There're lot of different temple types and one feels positive vibes everywhere. Seeing offerings of fire crackers was unique for the temple.

  • Beautiful and peaceful. All the three of them. No payment needed. It’s doesn’t take more than 30-45 min for visit all of them, including the picture time. If you are a woman you must be properly covered up with a long sleeve shirt and long skirt or long trousers; for men it’s was ok with a t-shirt and knees trousers. Near the exit stairs you probably see a family of monkeys
  • Very beautiful buildings, nice grounds. Kids were done for the day before making it to here, but I enjoyed climbing to the top to see the relic and also admire the view. I can't compare to other temples, as this was our one day out and about (and it was cut short by cranky kids), but it's worth at least 30 minutes to look around.
  • What a beautiful temple complex, amazing to walk around, and if you go there at 530pm you can see the monks praying. Highly recommended if you're in Phuket to pay your respects and visit here. Very tranquil and idyllic!
  • Very beautiful and grand temples all tucked into one area. Parking was abundant and it was all free so that was really nice. Make sure you're wearing clothes that cover your legs and shoulders too out of respect for the traditions and religiousness. There are 3-4 temples in which you can go inside some so make sure you do that.
  • Beautiful Buddhist temple in Phuket area and a must visit if you are interested in cultural sites. It is spread across huge area and there are seats and parks where you can sit and relax. It is scenic and taking photos is even allowed. Please wear appropriate clothes before visiting.
