Shrine of the Serene Light, Phuket

Shrine of the Serene Light, Phuket

If you love discovering places and enjoy different facets of a city then Phuket is just the place for you. The city is filled with hidden treasures that are waiting to be discovered and one such place is the Shrine of the Serene Light.

Small but breathtaking, the Shrine is one place that seldom makes it to the tourist map. One reason for this was that, until recently, the Shrine has been hidden behind a cluster of shops and small crowded alleys. It was only after a recent attempt to revamp the entire place, that the Shrine has got a decent entrance to welcome its devotees and visitors.

Located in the old town, off the Phang Nga Road, the Shrine was built by a local Hokkien Chinese family in 1889. Since then, the Shrine has always opened its doors for devotees and curious visitors. Even though it is located in one of the busiest districts of Phuket, one can immediately feel the peace and calm after entering the shrine. Filled with beautiful sculptures and paintings, one can even see the old mural speaking of the glories of the local Chinese hero "Si-in-Gui". Accessed via a small lane next to the On On Hotel, the Shrine of the Serene Light is a must visit in Phuket.
