Great temple

A temple we like to visit on holidays. Before noon there will be monks to perform blessings and accept offerings. A very peaceful place to meditate and come to rest.

Gorgeous temple. A must visit!!! It felt very spiritual and peaceful!!! I spent a lot of time admiring all the beautiful artwork and architecture. For women who happen to be wearing something with exposed shoulders or wearing shorts, they provide sarongs for you to cover yourself free of charge. Simply stunning and a must see!!!

Beautiful and colourful filled with flowers, incense and the sound of firecrackers for luck! A great stop on most Phuket day tours. It is believed to bring your family good luck if you visit Wat Chalong on your holiday to Phuket. It was rather busy the day we visited with lots of tour buses but didn't take anything away from...

We visited Wat Chalong - with its bright and beautiful decorations. It certainly is very busy and is included in most day tours of Phuket. There are 3 lovely temples (one which includes wax representations which are so life like of monks that have passed on). The main temple contains beautiful images of the Buddha in gold on two levels.... More

This was the second stop on our Phuket city tour. It was by far my favorite stop and a must visit! The grounds were not very crowded and it was very peacfeul! We entered the majority of the temples and spent time admiring all the beautiful artwork and architecture. For women who happen to be wearing something with exposed shoulders,... More

Visited Wat Chalong as it is one of Phuket's most visited sight-seeings and we were impressed by the architecture and the culture. Although it gets very busy with tourists, everyone is very respectful whilst in the temple premises. Not as impressive as the more famous temples in Bangkok, but still a nice place to visit.

We went to Wat Chalong, a destination most of the time included in the day tour of Phuket. There are three temples that are allowed for tourists. When you go inside you could see buddha statues and other religious buddhist structures and images. Be careful not to disturb the people praying while walking around. I guess the most important thing... More

Its very different to other temples we have seen! Its very bright and lots of gold statues. The day we visited it was very crowded and lots of fireworks were being lit outside in a brick hut. That was actually the high light for our family!! But its worth to the Buddhist temple and architecture.

A must visit for all irrespective what you believe in or not. The peace and calmness surrounded is only broken when the ritual crackers are broken in a enclosed earthen structure. The temple is spread in a huge area of land and is free of charge. One could see the mural paintings and if you go up to the top... More
