Shrine of the Serene Light - Chinese Shrine

This is a wonderful place to visit if you have the time.  The Shrine is being updated and being given a facelift but it is still certainly worth a visit.

This visit was during the Phuket Old Town Festival.

If you do choose to visit please remember to take your shoes off when you enter into the sacred area.  I have never experienced any animosity during my visits - if you are courteous to all people who are clearly there to celebrate the religion.

There is always a bell that you can ring for good luck and to cleanse out the evil spirits - if you do ring it please donate at least 20 Baht.  You can also ask for a question to be answered with two pieces of ellipse shaped wood OR a number of numbered sticks.
