Wat Chalong, Chalong

4.4
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Phuket
Enjoy the traditional architecture and experience the reverential atmosphere at Wat Chalong, a Buddhist temple featuring an iconic central pagoda. The complex of proud structures attracts a steady flow of Thai locals and tourists, drawn to its spiritual importance and impressively designed buildings. Enter the temple building to see the shining interior, ornately decorated and smelling strongly of incense. The temple is dedicated to two highly esteemed monks that led local citizens in the fight against the Chinese rebellion of 1976. Make Wat Chalong a centerpiece of your Phuket Town vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Phuket Town trip planning site .

  • Apart from some angles, the place does not convey the solemnity and peace of mind which is usually inherent in sacred places. I know that such features are the places of northern Thailand but this place I expected something more.

  • Are several together very showy and colorful temples, a way to learn about the culture of Thailand, you can see as they pray, we must enter barefoot, is a ride that can take an hour maximum, there are memories, health store to buy something to take

  • This restaurant is located the first shop on the left at the entrance to Wat Chalong. These noodle are a specialty to Phuket. They also have a fresh crab fried rice. All dishes are only Baht 50 each. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant while at Wat Chalong. These is no sign in English, but it is the first shop on the left t the entrance road to Wat Chalong. Awsum 5 stars. Yummmy.
  • Wow ~ ~ ~ ~!! And don't be surprised at the sound of the firecrackers a beautiful place
