Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a newly built temple in Phuket. The place is very large and there r still some construction going on surrounding the premises. It is very beautiful place. Too bad I could not post any pictures to share here.

Recommended by the hotel staff. Very beautiful and impressive. There is a nice cafe outside the temple for a break. Nearby there is also a food market, unfortunately it was closed when I visited.

Wat Bang Thong = Wat Mahatat Wachiramongkol
(This is the short, local, name of the official name. Both are on tripadvisor, but itnis the same excellent temple.)
As it is brand new, all decorations & paintings are in perfect condition!

I wrote the review there before:
"Just came back from it. They still continue working, and changes are coming fast! On weekends busloads with Thai people come to visit: organised by villagers, bring a monk with them. Many from area Nakhon Sitamarat. Interesting to see that families donate the robe and go around the main Buddha statue after praying with one of the available monks. On this Sunday we saw every 15 minutes new groups , maybe 10 at the time, going around with the orange robes/cloth.

My guess would be 75 meter?

There is a story that it is build for the new king Rama 10, partly donated by the father of the kings former wife.
I would like to learn more about this temple. If I find out, will tell here. (I live nearby in Manora Garden, Phangnga.)"

Worth the visit: 30 minutes from Phangnga or Ao Luk, 1 hour /1:15 from Krabi Ao Nang. A car is best, enough parking possibilities, good coffeeshop/snacks, very clean area. Since the main construction work is all finished, very easy to take beautiful pictures!

We would never have found this great temple without some local knowledge, it’s a spectacular find and whilst it’s “work in progress” it is well worth visiting as it’s not yet on the “tourist”map.

Non-Thais pay a small entry fee which goes to the fund to help the Wat’s completion. Ladies must cover their shoulders and legs, please dress modestly.

Tip: as with all temples, you remove your shoes. It’s quite a long walk from the gate to the central building and on a sunny day the flagstoned courtyard becomes very hot underfoot!

The temple and its extensive grounds are definitely worth a visit and are exceptional. Really impressive, even though we saw a lot of temples in our 4-week trip, this one is one of the most beautiful.

A temple to see without doubt but it lacks authenticity, a temple with recent construction. However, many monks present.
