Wat Phra Nang Sang

Wat Phra Nang Sang is the oldest temple inwards Phuket, dating dorsum perchance to a greater extent than than 500 years. If I read what I tin honour on the internet, it seems the exact historic menstruum is unsure together with for certain the temple has been renovated together with rebuilt over that time. It mightiness endure accurate to country a temple has been on the site for 500 years. One even out says a powerful southern Thai ruler had the temple built for his wife. Another even out says that the temple was built inwards accolade of a princess who was due to endure executed, although she had been framed together with was innocent. When she was executed she bled white blood, therefore showing her purity. The temple is likewise called Wat Luad Khao (White Blood Temple). In 1785, the Burmese invaded Phuket together with were fought off past times the people of Phuket led past times two sisters. The Phuket people gathered at this temple earlier the battle which was fought nearby. At that time, Thalang was the primary town inwards Phuket.

The battle is commemorated every twelvemonth inwards March at the Phuket Heroines Festival inwards Thalang. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 statue of Thao Thep Kassatri together with Thao Sri Sunthon (known every bit Chan together with Mook earlier King Rama I gave them these names for their valiant defense forcefulness of Phuket) lies inwards the temple grounds – a larger ane tin endure seen at the Heroines Monument – a traffic circle on the primary route betwixt the airdrome together with Phuket City.

Parts of the temple were notwithstanding existence built together with indeed straightaway inwards 2015 at that topographic point are notwithstanding parts existence built, together with a whole novel temple complex has been built behind the one-time temple! It’s never ending! The grounds are quite large, it’s worth taking your time.
