Wat Srisoonthorn, Phuket - 2020 (Photos & Reviews)

About Wat Srisoonthorn

This place is popularly known as Wat Lipon by the locals. The sleeping Buddha on top of the main building is a major attraction here. In fact, the statue is so large that it is easily recognizable from the road. Apart from this image, nine other images face the entrance, in a way to welcome people. It is a symbolic reminder to people to be kind towards others.



Location: It is nestled in Thalang, north of Phuket town and about 5 km north of the Heroine’s monument.

Highlights: The sleeping position represents Lord Buddha in a dreaming state. There are some non-Buddha images here including lions and a giant and they act as the guards of the temple. There is even a small bell tower for people to have a closer look.

Opens daily from 7:00 AM to 5.30 PM
