Wat Khao Rang in Phuket
Rang Hill Temple, also known as Wat Khao Rang, is a Buddhist temple located half way up Rang Hill in Phuket Town. Phuket’s first large Buddha image was constructed at Rang Hill Temple, whose popularity as a tourist destination has diminished with the construction of other larger Buddha statues on the island, particularly the Buddha statue at Chalong. This is one of the reasons why Rang Hill Temple is a great place to visit. This temple is very quiet with very few tourists coming to visit.
A visit to Wat Khao Rang is easy to combine with a visit to the viewpoint at the top of Rang Hill. If you walk up Rang Hill via the Khaw Sim Bee Road on the south side of the hill you go past the entrance to the temple. As well as the large seated golden Buddha statue, Wat Khao Rang also has a very beautiful shrine hall the inside of which is decorated in paintings of scene from the life of the Lord Buddha. The other feature of the temple which is also interesting is the large number of different statues which have been placed throughout the temple complex. Many of these statues depict character sfrom Thai and Hindu mythology. The views over Phuket Town are also very good and different to the view from the top of Rang Hill which faces in a different direction. Entry to Rang Hill Temple is free.
