Phuket | of temples

Continue our day out post. While we were in Phuket, we also covered 2 well-known temples in the island. Thailand is the world's most heavily Buddhist country and so it is not a surprise to see so many Buddhist temples within walking distance around Phuket. 

Wat Chalong which built in the 19th century is the largest in Phuket.

For burning firecrackers for good luck


Next, we visited the Big Buddha temple on the peak of Mount Nagakerd.

As we reached the top, Jamie dozed off so I stayed with him in the van while others continued their tour. I did managed to see the Big Buddha while on our way up.

Hubby took few photos for me to see.

What a beautiful temple. Thanks for sharing the photos.

The Big Buddha reminds me of the one at Lantau Island.
