Wat Chai Tararam, or Wat Chalong, is Phuket's most important Buddhist temple and is the biggest and most ornate of Phuket's 29 Buddhist monasteries. The architecture is typical of wats found throughout Thailand.

Wat Chalong is associated with the revered monks, Luang Pho Chaem and Luang Pho Chuang, both of whom were famous for there work in herbal medicine and tending to the injured. Statues honoring them stand in the sermon hall (viharn).

Many Thais come here to be blessed by the monks and receive a good luck charm in the form of a string tied around the wrist, which they believe protects them from injury and illness.

Thai people flock to Wat Chalong in order to regain their physical and spiritual powers. The Temple fairs are vivid and colorful. If you are looking for holy phallus fetishes or other Buddhist amulets and souvenirs - this might be the right place. Even though Wat Chalong is the temple with the biggest influx of tourists, it is still far from crowded.
