Wat Sri Sunthon

Wat Sri Sunthon – known by locals as Wat Lipon, this temple is in Thalang, north of Phuket Town. The first impression on entering the grounds is of the 29-metre-high Sleeping Buddha on top of the wat’s central building, so large that it is noticeable from the road outside. Nearby are nine other smaller Buddha images in different positions – all facing the entrance as if welcoming people.
