Wat Chalong Temple is Phuket’s largest and oldest Buddhist temple which dates back to 1837. It has a long history of being associated with healing, herbal medicine and helping locals in need of medical assistance.

It is also revered for a fragment of a bone of the Buddha that is considered a sacred relic. It was brought from Sri Lanka and was installed in the Wat Chalong Chedi by HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. It is best to visit during the week as on weekends and Thai public holidays the grounds can get very busy.
