It’s amazing, crowded but I guess a must see. Hire a taxi for the day and cover all the sites. You either need to be in long attire or carry a scarf to cover your self before entry. Very close to big Buddha so can...More

Very nice temple area. Usually very crowded but you may have chance to see all the spots. Takes 15-20 minutes to look around and check.

One of the must visit temple in Phuket if you are going for historical and culture. There are a number of building here and each having its own characteristics. Really amaze at the depth of the design.

The oldest temple in Phuket. When I visited, with my luck, it was a time of prayer. I joined the prayer. The complex is so holy and peaceful.

Great working temple, funeral and wedding when we visited. Large site with many temples. Food and drink kiosks. Loud bangs from fireworks even with tourists seemed spiritual. Pictures don't do it justice. Must do in Phuket.

Very beautiful temple and an amazing opportunity to learn about local culture and history. A free activity which is worth a visit particularly if combined with the Big Buddha.

Most temples will be happy to arrange blessings so better choose one close to where you are getting married. Cost can go from 5000+ Thai baht
