Thailand Landmarks: Wat Chalong Temple In Phuket

Wat Chalong is a historical landmark and Buddhist temple in Phuket’s Chalong Bay. For centuries, locals come to pray almost every day while westerners learn about Buddhism during their vacation. It’s officially called Wat Chaitararam, but most people refer to it by Wat Chalong. The temple is located on Chao Fa West Road in the northern part of Tambol Chalong.

Many locals claim that the temple often experiences many miracles. It’s also known for its pivotal and healing role in the fighting between Chinese secret societies (Angyee) in 1876.
