"Wat Chalong Temple" Wat Chalong Tip by FilipDemuinck

Wat Chalong, Phuket: 24 reviews and 64 photos


The Wat Chalong is the most important Buddhist temple of Phuket. It is certainly worth a visit. In a small conical construction people set off fire crackers to predict their future and give them fortune. Many people believe the temple protects them against illnesses.

Recently a 61 meter high Chedi was added to the temple complex where a fragment of a bone of Buddha is preserved. This fragment was trasferred from Sri Lanka and installed in the Chedi in 2002. All three floors of the Chedi are accesible for visitors. Inside you find many Buddha images and wall paintings.
