Wat Sri Sunton is located in the center of the island, on a busy highway. Teprasatri, in connection with which it constantly remains away from the eyes tourists passing by brought (hallelujah!). On the one hand, this invisibility of the temple deprives him of deserved attention, but on the other – never Byvet many people. Buddhist temple, few people neat and well-groomed territory is a great mix that allows relax, finally lower your camera and listen to the silence. On my opinion is that Sri Sunton is a temple where you can return or be sure to taxi to the stop if he was on the way.

Wat Sri Sunthon
The temple was built at the end of the 17th century, and before it was renamed the honor of one of the heroine sisters (very famous characters in the story Phuket) Wat Si Sunton was called Wat Lipon. The territory of the temple very small, but from this she only acquired more charm. Along the fence planted rows of casuarin, greens in the yard is clearly under the supervision of a gardener, plus everywhere broken ponds and corners of Thai sculpture – peculiar and sometimes comic art. No matter how it sounded, sculptors from local “masters” – no. If in the evening suddenly see them a cement bunny peeking out from behind a fence then you can get extensive heart attack.
The layout of the temple area is basically standard in all but one – the biggest is at Wat Sri Suntone statue of a reclining Buddha in Phuket. Or rather – the longest. Besides her there is still a lot of Buddha images smaller, but in fact, except the temple and the historical renaming of the temple no longer have any chips You can drive inside right by car or motorbike, on inspection of the whole temple will take no more than a quarter of an hour, but the atmosphere here such that you don’t want to hurry anywhere. Be careful with dogs – not always respond adequately to visitors.
