Another beautiful place to see such great workmanship and also a great place to sit and worship buddha while thinking off people you may have known or know.

The only regret is that we did not have and English speaking guide with us so that I was able to better understand this incredible place. If you are going to go. Try and arrange a private guide. Will be worth it. Head up to... More

I have travelled extensively in Thailand and the attention to detail and finish in the architecture in this Temple leaves a lot to be desired. The furniture fittings ,Statues and other appointments, are also poor in execution and without Historical merit. In saying this the grounds are beautiful and well maintained.

We visited as part of a city tour of Phuket Town, and spent about 30 or 40 minutes here. The main building is a few stories, which you can climb up the stairs and go to the top. If you're wearing anything showing anything more than a little bit of your lower leg you will get wrapped in a sarong... More

If you are in Karon, take time out for a quick visit to the temple - beautiful! It is a fairly small temple but very well maintained. Vibrant colours and some very big serpents!

This is one of the biggest temples in Phuket and has some really splendid architecture. Worth seeing as part of the local culture.

This was my first temple visit in Thailand and I really enjoyed. You need to dress appropriately, although the staff will provide extra garments to cover if you enter one of the temples and you have to leave your footwear outside too. The interiors are amazing. There were 3 floors in all and the stairs were steep. A great view... More
