    Phuket Big Buddha, or The Great Buddha of Phuket, is a seated Maravija Buddha statue in Phuket, Thailand. It is nice area to take photo and see the local .But, be
    careful from mosquito .This place great for one hour for adult ,Do not bring your
    kids they will tired and bored.
    If you want to visit this landmark, either rent a bicycle or through the tourist offices, stay away from the taxi, they take large sums of money.

    Friday 14th February and we visited the majestic Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong).

    The Grand Pagoda, Chedi, is the most imposing building in the Complex, standing 60 metres tall. However there are a number of smaller buildings that are worth looking at, including this one.

    The Reverend Father Abbot temple is a small elegant building and is easy to identify with its colourful roof with orange and green tiles. At each end of the roof there is a gilded chofah adornments, which are believed to represent the mythical creature Garuda, the vehicle of the Hindu god Vishnu.

    The Temple has ornate gold leaf window frames. It is well worth keeping an eye open for.

    Friday 14th February and we visited the Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong). This smaller but no less ornate Temple is situated within the Comples

    This is where Buddists come to make offerings and to pray that their wishes/dreams are granted. This included rubbing gold leaf on to the statues and leaving floral tributes.

    People return here and light fire crackers, when wishes are granted. This is done in a kiln like structure, by the Temple. It made quiet a racket as the sound of fire crackers being lit rang out through the complex.

    Small beautiful Temple not to be missed during a visit to Wat Chalong.
