Beautiful temple complex
Feb 2020 • Friends
We had visited the beautiful Wat Mongkol Nimit temple in old Phuket town during our sightseeing tour of the old Phuket town. We liked the beautiful Pagoda style architecture of the temple tower and intricate colorful art work on the walls of the temple. At the backside there is a giant stupa which is surrounded by many golden colored small stupas. Inside the temple when we sat before the Lord Buddha it was very peaceful.

Wat Mongkhon Nimit is worth a short stop for its pagodas and Buddha statues but won't be all that interesting for visitors who have seen some of Thailand's bigger temples.

We were walking by, so went in for a look. We were not dressed suitably to go inside, need enclosed shoes, long pants & shirt. We had shorts & thongs on. It’s an elaborately decorated temple, got some great pics.

A peaceful temple!
Jul 2018 • Family
Wat Mongkol Nimit was built in 1880. It was initially named Wat Klang. Klang means middle in Thai. The entrance is free but you have to be modestly dressed. This temple complex has a monk school and a beautiful Chedi. You can easily find this peaceful temple at the end of Soi Romanee on Dibuk Road in the middle of elegant Sino Portuguese houses.

Beautiful temple
Feb 2019
A very beautiful temple well worth visiting. However, as many people mention... be sure to either dress appropriately or carry something with you that will cover your legs and shoulders. It’s very disrespectful to go in dressed inappropriately.

Many outside symbols and impressive 3 buildings/areas. All covered with different theme.
Important Tip: carry something to cover your legs and shoulders so you can enter!

Dress appropriately for temple visits!
Jun 2018 • Couples
We did not get to enter as we were not properly attired (or just bring scarves to cover up) but even from the outside, the temple is very beautiful. Colourful architecture and plenty of gold, we tried to sneak peeks at the inside as well and feel it would have been well worth a visit.

Beautiful architecture
May 2018 • Family
This Budhha Temple is a beautiful creation jointly by chinese and Europeans. Before visiting the temple, we first went to a separate area within the temple complex to meet the Monk and to seek his blessings. In this part of the building, people offer food items to the monks, cook food for them and seek blessings. Here there is a Budhha Idol, where 3 incense sticks are offered- one for Lord Budhha himself, 2nd for disciples of Budhha and 3rd for the Monks.
There is a school in the Temple premises where teachers are mostly monks themselves.
The residence of the Monk is also situated in the same premises.
At the entrance to the main temple, there was a small structure called 'boundary' which is typically a symbol for such places and was exactly at the centre of the front part of the temple. And in all total 9 such structures were found around the Temple premises.
The main Temple has a huge idol of Lord Budhha, where we prayed for peace and wellbeing by bowing down 3 times as per the ritual. Behind this temple, there is a huge conical structure called pagoda, where bones and ashes of Lord Budhha are preserved and there is no access for the public to the remains of the Lord.
Felt satisfied after paying a visit to temple and after receiving blessings from the Monk
