Wat Sri Soonton (Wat Sri Sunthon)


The temple is named after one of the two heroines from a famous Phuket legend, Thao Sri Sunthon. This temple is usually a quiet spot with just a few locals paying respect to Buddha. It is home to the largest reclining Buddha image in Phuket. You can go up the stairs at the back of the building to get a close view.

This temple is located on the Thepkrasattri Road is Wat Sri Soonton. It is just over a kilometer north of the Heroines monument. The two heroines are sisters who led the successful resistance against Burmese invaders in 1785. The monument is a statue of the two sisters in the center of a traffic circle.
