A very well decorated temple and the most important worship place of the island. The various building are having their own specificities and purpose. The only drawback are the loads of tourists, irrespecutful of the place and the statues. Might be wise to come very early morning to avoid them.

Thank Nic U

If you’re travelling or vacationing in Phuket then this needs to be on your to-do list! Only takes about 2 hours to go round (if you walk slow and stop every 5 minutes for pictures like I did). Gorgeous temples and interesting to see for those who may not (like myself) understand the Buddhist religion. One temple does require you to have your shoulders and knees covered but they provide skirts and shawl’s if need be so don’t worry too much about it. This place allows for some great pictures!

Wonderful and peaceful. We enjoyed out visit here and could have spent the whole day, we went around 5pm so there were no crowds at all, just stunning.

Very good Experience So much Culture & Different Temples to go see well worth a visit . This is a early morning place if you want to avoid the masses get there before 9am.
You can spend a good couple of hours here if you like the Thia Culture .
