Wat Suwan Khiriwong, Patong

(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Wat Suwan Khiriwong and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Patong trip builder.

  • Serene quiet place. Worth paying a visit, however the temple is closed and you can only observe the exterior. Upstair is a temple with monks.
  • I like these temples, so I give this one 5 stars, because I think the low ratings are not ok. :)
  • It's not a very impressive temple but that's the best one around. Never saw the main building opened.
  • The temple itself is beautiful but almost completely shut down ,you can see the architecture and return otherwise a wasted trip
