  • Kiew Tien Keng Shrine in Phuket

    Phuket Town Attractions - Chinese Shrines

    0

    This stunning shrine located in a superb location at Saphanhin Park, Kiew Tien Keng must be one of the most beautiful places of worship in Phuket.

    It’s the only shrine that is located near the seashore and is considered the departure spot to send all gods/deities back to heaven on the final night of the Vegetarian Festival. It’s where the colourful parades of each shrine officially come to an end when a normal diet can resume.

  • Highlights and Features

    There are artistic images of various deities on the altars and quite a few life-size statues here and there. Among them is a silver statue of Ji Gong who probably is the most non-traditional monk in all Chinese folklore. Not only did he eat meat and drank, his image was also projected as a smiling monk who wore nothing but beggar-like clothes and always holding a torn bamboo hand fan as well as carrying funny stuff with him (the one presented here has a chicken on one knee, you can’t miss it.) Legend has it that he was a talented medicine man with a big heart therefore he was a hero for the poor.

    Also, there are the impressive eight immortals of the Taoist tradition standing tall on the terrace looking out to sea. Overall, the quality of the workmanship and choices of materials chosen here are quite amazing. Truly a must-see shrine!
