Wat Putta Mongkon (Wat Mongkhon Nimit) is a Buddhist temple in Phuket Town, close to Thalang Road. If you're walking around this historical part of Phuket, a stop at this temple is definitely worth the time as some of its architecture is very unique. The temple is made up of a central hall built in a Sino-Portuguese style, with a roof with ornate carvings. Make sure not to miss the yellow chedi, which you can find right behind Wat Putta Mongkon.
