Enjoy some peace and quiet in the middle of busy central Patong at Wat Suwan Khiriwong. Serpent sculptures lining the stairways lead you to the temple complex, which includes a main chapel, pagoda, and monastery hall. Inside you'll find ornate decorations, wax statues of monks, and golden statues of Buddha. The temple is frequented by locals and tourists alike, and you might get the opportunity to witness some of the local customs, such as the lighting of crackers in the fire pit. Out of respect for these customs, ensure your clothes cover up your shoulders and knees. With our world travel planner, Patong attractions like Wat Suwan Khiriwong can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • You enter this temple and totally forget that there is a busy road right outside . beautiful architecture , one gets lost in the detail on its walls  more »
  • Patong Temple is located on a hill at the entrance to the Patong area of Phuket. It's just a short distance from the airport and a large hairpin curve. It is a temple decorated with a glittering Thai style.

  • There was nobody in the temple except us and monks, everything is beautiful and well-groomed. No monkeys seen. In the temple at the very top, where sits a wax monk as if alive, a lot of dogs. I was surprised that the monks smoke sitting on the stairs of the temple, all the smoke of a draught came upon us when we and the wax monk
