This temple is simply replete with numerous legends and stories. It is believed that real miracles are happening here, and that the temple even played an important role during the war of the Chinese secret societies in 1876.
The temple is officially called `` Wat Chaitararam '', but almost no one knows this name. The temple is located in the north of the island, quite close to many attractions.
The word Chalong means festival. Once upon a time, Burmese settlers named the area Chalang, as they moved here from Thalang. However, no such word exists in Thai, so the government ordered officials to rename the area to Chalong.
