Chalong Temple (Wat Chalong)

Chalong, South Phuket

This is where stands the cast statue of Luang Por Cham, who helped the people of Phuket put down the Ahngyee.

  1. Worth visiting not just for the temple but also to see monks go about there daily life, plus there is an exhibition of wax models of past abbots, housed in a traditional Thai House. Many firecrackers were let off by the locals, for merit, they made me jump out of my skin55

  2. A beautiful temple to visit. I only wish there had been a guide there to tell us about the history and the different buildings.

  3. Stopped here with our tour guide while on the way to Promthep Cape. Very worth a 30 min visiting, the long time history and magical about the temple very amazing. I saw many tourists here, both Thais and foreigners. Not just for the temple but other things like architecture, colourful intricate carvings over the building very shining and attractive. Also nice to see how people offer flowers and incense to express their worshiping. Most Thai people come here for prayer and they come back for exploding firecrackers. Just remember to wear only polite clothes, we were told by our tour guide…we were therefore ready.
