About Suwan Khiri Wong Temple (Patong Temple)Situated at the bottom of a hilly road, that storms across Kathu and Phuket town, Suwan Khiri Wong Temple or Patong temple represents the entrance to Patong.
Highlights: The area near by the Patong temple will remind you the fusion of the old and new Phuket. Inside the temple, you can witness the old Phuket, but as you come out, you can have the view of well - developed and brand new Phuket. Surrounding the temple are the communities, older houses and local people. The Patong temple itself is a little haven of peace in the area with a bell tower, dining hall, monks’ quarters, etc. You can have the sight of the monks only in the early morning hours when they walk along the temple road to the older Patong.
