Wat Chalong Temple


This is one of the most famous temple in Phuket. It is Phuket’s most important Buddhist temple and is the biggest and most ornate of Phuket’s 29 Buddhist monasteries. Here's the main hall. Many Thais come here to be blessed by the monks and receive a good luck charm in the form of a string tied around the wrist, which they believe would protect them from injury and illness.
