South of Phuket Town, not far from Chalong Bay, you'll find Wat Chalong, the largest and most famous of Phuket's Buddhist temples. It enshrines gilt statues of two revered monks who helped quell an 1876 Chinese rebellion. They're wrapped in brilliant saffron robes. Wats are generally open during daylight hours, and you can show up at 5 pm to see the resident monks pray. You can take a taxi, tuk-tuk, or motorcycle here from town.
