I recommend on the way to the observation deck Rang Hill, well, or after her, go to the courtyard of the eponymous temple Khao Rang Samakhitam (in some sources – Samnak Song Khao Rang). I especially recommend those who are not yet versed in this business, and if you have not yet been Thai temples, in principle. Well or were, but it is not your twentieth temple in a row, and you are not bored with monotonous architecture and sculpture of such places. Cool temple with a large sitting statue Buddha’s (formerly Phuket’s largest), and next to it typical, beautiful, all from a brilliant building of the temple of Khao Rank.

Wat Khao Rang
Wat Khao Rang is a relatively old temple, built under the patronage of one of the oldest and most respected Monks of the Kingdom of Thailand – Luang Po Subha. By the way, on Phuket is another temple that was created during his direct participation – Wat Sirey. Drive past it you haven’t it will turn out – when you head along the road to the top of the mountain, then it will open on the right, in the direction of travel. At first glance, the temple as if nothing attracts. Well temple and temple, buddhist construction, a lot of cement, some paint and curly roof lines with frozen in stone, the sacred flame.
However, if you do not regret half an hour of your time, park and then climb the stairs to the upper level then behind the buildings of the first line of the temple grounds you will find statue of a seated Buddha painted in golden color. From buddha statue and the temple offers a relatively panoramic view, although I would not considered it as a viewpoint – the sea from here is not visible, but on The top of Rang Hill is a much more attractive place. About the stairs will be a pointer to “The largest Buddha image on Phuket “, but the Big Buddha has long grabbed the palm next to Karon.
Feels like Wat Khao Rang, I would give him that feature: non-touristic place on the tourist trail. Thats there are, despite the fact that a number of tourists are passing nearby, hurrying to the panoramic observation deck, few of them decide slow down near a low-key temple, unaware that he has such a cute secret. There are few people here, some kind of crass, unhurried, very cozy atmosphere and almost palpable energy. Monks are not spoiled by the attention of tourists and when you ask tie you on your hand subsin – never do it in bulk, sitting in front of a few people. Only personally with each as required by the spellcasting ritual.
