  • Peaceful temple. Nice buildings. Some dogs and cats wandering about. Free to enter. Nice to stroll around if in the area.
  • Wat Nai Yang or, the official name, Wat Mongkol Wararam is one of the most important temple in Phuket. On the New Moon in September, it hosts the biggest religious ceremony called “Sat thai” which Thai people (especially people from Southern) believe that their ancestor spirit will come back to visit the familly. So people around the town will come here to pray, donate money and give alms to the monks. However, except for that special ceremony, this temple is really quite. There are statues in Thai- and Myanmar-style. The most noble statue here is Luang Por Nang Suea statue (หลวงพ่อหนังเสือ) which literarily means Venerable Monk with tiger rope. The statue is built as a memorial to the first abbot of the temple. Don’t forget to visit this statue.
