Hints of gold and intricate architectural details adorn Wat Chalong. However, much significance is attached to The Grand Pagodathat is known to contain a bone splinter from the lord Buddha. The walls of the Pagoda are works of art, as murals of the Lord Buddha’s life and teachings are etched beautifully. These murals can be admired and revered on the first and second levels of the tower. The third level offers a surprise to all visitors. The view of the landscape is splendid, but the most engaging sight is the statue of the Big Buddha of Phuket. Be armed with a camera, but converse in low tones while respecting the sanctity of the temple.
The occasional boom of firecrackers might be slightly baffling to visitors but be aware that devotees engage in this practice to make merit to Lord Buddha. As the sacredness of the temple is of great importance, it is mandatory that you dress respectfully. It is in preserving the sanctity of the temple that you are left with a feeling of peace.
