Wat Chalong is a Buddhist temple, located on the outskirts of Phuket Town, greatly respected by the local Buddhist community. Considered the most beautiful on the island, it contains a gilt statue of Luang Por Cham, the monk who became a hero when he helped quell the Chinese Coolie rebellion of 1876, during the reign of King Rama V. The Wat also has a statuette of the famous abbot Luang Por Gluam.
I visited the temple at about mid-day when it was very hot. But this did not reduce the calm and peaceful atmosphere of the place.
I had specifically called to pray in a holy place following the death of my 20 yr old cat in UK during my absence.
Following the Buddhist Prayer ceremony uplifted my spirits and I could not have wanted to be in any other place to celebrate the passing of a dear pet.
There was however a lack of persons belonging to the temple to explain in detail the correct procedure. I had to rely on the kind host who took me to the Temple Complex.
I really liked this temple. The main building on three floors was splendid. The murials on the walls are really striking. From the top you can get some good views of the surrounding area. There are stalls around the Wat where you can buy souveneirs etc. Its not a long visit, an hour at the most but well worth it.
