Aside from beautiful beaches and hip cafés, Phuket is also home to Chalong Temple, the province’s largest and most renowned temple.
The history that makes Chalong Temple or Chaitararam Temple the most prominent were dated back to the time of Luang Phor Cham, who helped the locals defeat the Chinese in the 1876 Angyee Rebellion. The next abbots after him were also masters of eastern medicine and healing herbs, making this temple a sacred place where Buddhists come to pray for good health and cures of any symptoms.
Standing out from the rest of the temple ground is the revered and breath-taking beauty Grand Pagoda, where Lord Buddha’s relics from Sri Lanka is kept. Step in and be in awe by the delicate Jataka wall paintings as well as panoramic view of the town.
