More about Wat Phra Nang Sang

The Wat Phra Nang Sang temple in Phuket, the oldest on the island, is especially famous for the legend behind it. Legend has it that it was built by Lady Luad Khao, wife of the king Nakhon Si Thammarat who blamed her of being unfaithful and decided to sentence her to death. She demanded to pay her last respects to a relic of the Buddha in Sri Lanka and on her way back she stopped in Thalong and decided to build the Wat Phra Nang Sang temple. The legend goes on and says that when she died her blood was completely white, because she was innocent. And since then the temple is also called the temple of the queen. A part from the romantic legend, the Wat Phra Nang Sang temple is interesting due to its relics: inside the temple, you will find a mummified monk, three little representations of the Buddha on a tin and a statue of Thao Thep Kassatri and Thao Sri Sunthon, the two sisters, heroines of Phuket. Moreover, of course, its breathtaking frescos! So don’t miss the Wat Phra Nang Sang!
