Sui Boon Tong Shrine

Phuket Attractions - Chinese Shrines

Commonly known as Lorong Shrine, Sui Boon Tong was founded only about three decades ago by a group of ‘entranced horses’ or mediums. Comparing to other shrines on island, Lorong is quite simple.

It’s basically a yellow shop-house that is visible from the roadside. Despite its appearance, it is counted among the most important shrines during the annual Vegetarian Festival.

Highlights and Features

Good use is made of the space on both floors of the building with many altars and religious objects. One item that stands out is a beautiful wooden jioa; a wheel-less vehicle using for carrying and parading its main deity around during important ceremonies. And don’t be surprised to see some locals rubbing the big belly of a Budai image.

Devotees believe that by doing so, it will bring them wealth and prosperity. It’s easy to spot him in gold/yellow colour sitting on the terrace with a kind and smiling face and of course a huge belly. Budai is a popular Chinese deity around East Asia and because of his appearance, he sometimes is called the laughing Buddha.
