Pra Tong Temple (Wat Phra Thong)

3.5 out of 5 based on 2 reviews.
Thalang, North Phuket

The fairly small Wat Phra Tong or Pra Tong Temple, means the Golden Buddha Temple is located in Thalang, which if driving towards Phuket Airport on the main Airport Road 402 is no the right just after the main traffic light controlled Thalang junction.

Within the grounds are a number of temples, and a small museum with some tin mining artifacts. The main temple has been built around a half buried large Buddha image, that was discovered hundreds of years ago.

  1. The hidden half Buddha Statue story about the temple is interesting. Not a huge temple so only took 40 minutes to look around. Had a car park and is sign posted from the airport rd. Worth a look if in the north of the island but not worth a special trip

  2. Wat Pra Tong is one of my favorite temple. I always go there with my family on the weekend. My friend from Bangkok also ask me to drop here every time when they come to Phuket. We know the legend from old people who live around this temple. Pra Tong is amazing for us.
