Very ornate complex of temples. Can go inside all but one, which is for the monks currently studying. It is fine to take photos inside and outside temples. Take a relaxing walk around and enjoy the peaceful place for what it is. Shoes to be taken off before entering temples & please wear appropriate clothing for respect to Buddha. Sarongs... More

Even if you have seen many temples before, this one is worth visiting. The stunning architecture grabs your attention immediately as you enter the "main" temple. The atmosphere inside is remarkably calming, people praying in silence, the aroma of the burning incense sticks floating in the air. Give yourself a bit of time to visit the entire complex, as there... More

First time to see Thai Temple and it's worth viewing. Would love to go back again to this place. You have to remove your shoes, cap and sun glasses and for the girls needs to cover their shoulders. This is to pay respect.

I was so moved by the intricate and detailed gold work laced across the temples. It was such an honour to be in the place of such a beautiful and peaceful way of life. The day was meant for me on our family trip to Thailand but in the end, my husband and 3 teenagers ended up loving it too.... More

We went to visit this excellent religion place for Buddhist and as Christians we paid respect for the Holy place of these people. Like all Buddhist Temples you have to take your shoes before you enter but you can take photos and video inside and outside except the Temple of Golden Buddha in Bangkok where you are not allowed to...

There are some beautiful temples and shrines here and it felt very spiritual. You can climb up some of them and you get some lovely views of the surrounding Phuket countryside. You can also see the Big Buddha on the hill. As this is a holy place you need to ensure you are covered up ie shoulders and legs to... More

There is 3 floor in total and every floor will display all different buddha and when you reach the top floor, you can walk around the roof top to have a full view of... More
