During our holidays in Phuket we had visited the beautiful Khao Rang hill view point and this temple was located at the foot hill. We had to climb steps to reach the temple. The temple is very beautiful with intricate art work in golden color on the outside walls and the Pagoda style temple tower. Inside the temple we were mesmerized to see the colorful wall paintings depicting stories from the life of Lord Buddha. We liked the peaceful ambience inside the temple.

What makes it 2 stars for me is it is within Phuket town and almost no tourists. The temple is quite dated and need some refreshing. The toilets are dirty. The lady is grumpy.

If you want to have a good feeling after visiting the temple, AVOID at all costs (100thb) "Rama V Buddha Images museum". It's a total sham with fake monks who smoke, handle cash and sell amulets of dobtful origin for 100k+ thb a piece. Clearly the whole attraction is targeted at Chinese bus tours, and it is hard to wrap your head around how it is possible in a temple even in corrupt Phuket. Really hope police will take notice, but seriously doubt it :(

We just got back from Phuket & spent our Christmas break there. I enjoyed this place more than The Big Buddha!

I don’t understand why one review said this place is small & not worth it. WRONG! This temple is huge & totally worth the visit! For one, it was practically empty when we went, so we got to enjoy walking around without a huge crowd. This is one of the few less visited temples compared to the other more popular ones, so if you want to avoid a bigger crowd, go to this one!

The intricate details on the structures & the “Gods” were impeccable!! Truly a spectacular & solemn place!

this one is a little out of the vs big buddha and all the other attractions but here you will get to interact with monks and get a real feel of what temples are like.

we were on a very short visit to this golden buddha. There were nothing to do, and a very small space so you could barely see the Buddha, without seeing it from underneath. Not worth the visit, and a very small place.

This temple is by any means not much different then many others I have visited so far in Thailand. It still offers an oasis of peace and quiet and is a nice stopover on the way to the viewpoint. Stop by for a more intimate experience and being by yourself here. Very colorfull, just follow the stairs up and turn left to the golden Buddha after you passed the temple.

Saw this place by accident so asked our driver to stop. Good way to spend some time admiring the beauty and culture of Thailand. Very quite as we were the only ones there so good to have some reflection time

This site is really two areas. The golden Buddha and the temple. Don't miss the stairs leading to the temple and the interior. The painting is amazing!
