Amazing place in the highest point of Phuket. Must see this. Big Buddha statue 45 meters high.
Very friendly monks in the temple. Free entrance, inexpensive items, drinks and food.
Keep the rules: this is a religion, not a night club. Silence, respect, not shorts, etc, allowed, but they give you (for free) some clothing to cover yourself.
Funny monkeys in the area, but stealing everything: watch out!
Great for pictures and video. Stunning view of the Andaman sea and Phuket

Big Dudda in the top of the mountain. Great views. You can get the blessing of a Monk. Expect 1 hour stay.

The statue of Buddha is impressive, all white marble. The view is amazing. You can also queue to get a blessing from the Buddhist monks.
