Wat Suwan Khiriwong, Patong

(200+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • The Suwannee Khiri Wong Temple is beautiful and quite close to Patong beach, interesting walk over there as you get good impression about the "real" reality of Thai people living here. Good place to h...  more »
  • I have given this five stars. It could have got four stars, because it would be very difficult for a disabled person to climb all the stairs to the temple. We found this to be a very nice calm place, ...  more »
  • I went to the temple for a change from Patong Beach. The walk was about 20 mins from where I was staying (Poppa Palace Hotel). On the way there, it definitely showed the different sides of Thailand. T...  more »

  • We are privileged to be able to visit religious structures like this. Although there are many temples in Asia, they are good to visit for the relaxing atmosphere about them. This one has many structures and are very interesting to look at the different architecture. The day we were there, there were a lot of tourists. There is no charge but donations are always welcome. Visited April 2015.
  • 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.
  • It's not a very impressive temple but that's the best one around. Never saw the main building opened.
  • A beautiful little temple.
  • Awesome place! Great architecture and energy! Feel yourself like Lara Croft here:) Check photos on Instagram @worldtourgram
