From this viewpoint, we can see how large of the temple

Looking at the temple from outside it is quite huge. Getting to the entrance gate, we see a clearer view of this large Buddhist temple. It is decorated exactly like all Buddhist temples in Thailand yet shows the uniqueness of Buddhism through the elegant and colourful designs around it.

After taking a photo from outside, we go inside the temple itself to look around. There are murals depicting the life of Lord Buddha like other temples. It makes me think that maybe the artist is the same person who creates the murals for all temples in Phuket such as Pranang-Sang temple. It is an interesting point to notice. Maybe you can make a comparison and judge for yourself. The other interior designs are marvelous; particularly the ceiling of this temple.

So, if you have time and you are looking for a tranquil place to visit, Cherng Talay temple could be an interesting alternative. Finding your way here is easy. Drive to the Two Heroines Monument from Phuket town on Thepkassatri Road and turn left toward Surin Beach . It is approximately 10 minutes drive from the monument and is on the right just before you reach Cherng Talay village.
