Wat Chayamangkalaram information
Just off Jln Burma, the main road to Batu Ferringhi, is this wat. This brightly painted Thai temple houses a 33m-long reclining Buddha, draped in a gold-leafed saffron robe. The claim that it's the third longest in the world is a dubious one, but it's a colourful temple and worth a visit. Take the Teluk Bahang-bound bus U101 from Weld Quay or Komtar.
