Temple Tha Rue Shrine  

Jaeb met the guide here.  Very helpful . He is from the same town as Jaeb. A small town in Issan. 



Can see and learn more at Tha Rue Shrine  click 

Wat Khao Rang Samakkhitham at one time had the largest Buddhist statue on Phuket Thailand.  The Big Buddha at Chalong now is larger.  But this temple is worth the visit.

Go with Jaeb Na Ka and I on our trip there.  

Located on Rang Hill in Phuket town.   Kinda hard to find but we will give you a Google map at the bottom.  

There are two areas of the Wat . The older building where the big Buddha is located on top.  If you park in the parking lot across the street.  

There is the newer area where the new temple is.  There is a large statue of Yammaraj or the Lord of darkness. 

Many carving and statues to see. Take the steps with the green NAGA  SNAKES.

Asanha Bucha in ThailandThai:อาสาฬหบูชา) is a TheravadaBuddhist festival which typically takes place in July, on the full moon of the eighth lunar month. It is celebrated in CambodiaThailandSri LankaLaosMyanmar and in countries with Theravada Buddhist populations. Asalha Puja, also known as Dhamma Day, is one of Theravada Buddhism’s most important festivals, celebrating as it does the Buddha’s first sermon in which he set out to his five former associates the doctrine that had come to him following his enlightenment. This first pivotal sermon, often referred to as “setting into motion the wheel of dhamma,” is the teaching which is encapsulated for Buddhists in the four noble truths: there is suffering (dukkha); suffering is caused by craving (tanha); there is a state (nibbana) beyond suffering and craving; and finally, the way to nirvana is via the eightfold path. All the various schools and traditions of Buddhism revolve around the central doctrine of the four noble truths

The day is observed by donating offerings to temples and listening to sermons
