Wat Chalong is also known as Chai Tararam it is the most famous Buddhist temple and monastery on the island.

Here is the statue of the late, highly referred monk Luang Po Cham. The monk led the people to fight against the Chinese immigrants influx at tin mining times, it is said that the Chinese workers also were trying to grab the island in 1876 before the Thai Government send troops to solve the problems, at that
time there were no helicopters and Toyota pickups, means they had some time problems.

The Thai King Rama V appointed Luang Po Cham with the ecclesiastical title of Phra Kru Wisit Wongsacharn. Beside the statue of Luang Po Cham, other objects are also on display, e.g. his walking stick and his painting on the second floor of the kuti -residence- of the abbot.

Thai temples have a very long tradition in terms of the structure and overall architecture. The main building looks almost identical to Wat Benchamabopit (19 century) in Bangkok. It retains some structure elements from Khmer origin.
Within the compound are a few very impressive buildings giving an idea of Thai workmanship.
