1. Phuket Temples:
We always believe in auspicious beginnings, don’t we?
Why not begin your dreamy Phuket Honeymoon by visiting some places of worship?
Thailand believes in peace and mainly follows Buddhism among many other religions. The Buddhist temples in Thailand are called Wat’s. And Phuket not only has Wat’s, but also some beautiful Chinese Shrines.
These shrines are very famous not only for their discipline but also for their magnificent architecture and intricate craftsmanship. Some of the temples are popular for the beauty of their destination (Phuket Big Buddha- 45 meter tall Burmese Marble Idol, atop the scenic Nakkerd Hill) and others are extremely important for their religious significance (Chaitarama Temple- believed to have special healing powers as tiny fragment of Lord Buddha’s bone is still present here).
A few things to bear in mind before you visit any shrine are,
