About Wat Chaiwatthanaram

The largest Buddhist temple in Phuket, the Wat Chaiwatthanaram is a major attraction.

The temple houses the statues of two revered monks, one of whom was the abbot of the temple at the beginning of the century, Luang Prak Seng, who was so renowned for his bonesetter skills that he was awarded the title of “Special Holy Orders”. Among the temples in Phuket, this is the most popular, and the temple has an impressive hall where 108 golden Buddhas are enshrined.

Because of the restrictions imposed by the law and the fact that firecrackers are not popular in Thai temples, Phuket is the only island in the country that is a special case. Because of the large number of Chinese immigrants, firecrackers are only heard in Phuket on New Year’s Day, and Chalong Temple is one of the temples where firecrackers are allowed to be set off by the locals. Meals / Accommodation / Shopping Food is available for sale in the temple. Transportation 8 km from Phuket Town, 25 minutes by car.
