Beautiful temple
Feb 2020 • Friends
During our vacation in Phuket we had visited the old Phuket town and saw the Sangtham Shrine which is located here. This is a small but beautiful Chinese temple. We removed our shoes before entering the temple with other tourists where some locals were offering prayers.

Colourful Shrine
Feb 2020
Friday 14th February and a visit to Old Phuket was the final stop of our Explore Phuket Tour.

While exploring and strolling about the Town, we came across this beautiful old Chinese shrine on Phangnga Road.

It is also known as the Shrine of the Serene Light and was founded in 1891.

It would be very difficult to avoid seeing the building with is many arched windows, terracotta roof tiles and numerous colourful hanging lanterns and fabrics adorning the building.

Sadly we were on a tight schedule so did not have time to go inside the Shrine, however, we did stop for a few minutes to admire and enjoy this holy building.

Nice little shrine
Sep 2019 • Couples
We stopped in here after having an exquisite lunch at Tu Kab Khao across the road. Very nice little shrine, an oasis really in Phuket town. Well worth 10-15 minutes to have a looksie.

A well preserved Hokkien Chinese Shrine!
Jul 2018 • Family
This is an over hundred years old Chinese shrine of Phuket. It has many names like “Teng Kong Tong Shrine” or “Sing Jia Kong Shrine,” or “Am Teng Kong Tong.” In 1891 Luang Amnat Nararak, a Chinese senior government officer, built this shrine on Phang Nga Road for worshiping, storing his Chinese deities and gathering his family. It is a very serene and beautiful shrine built in Hokkien Chinese style. The wall art and stonework is very artistic. In 1997 this shrine received the Conservation Award by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

A hidden shrine
May 2019 • Couples
A small, colourful and peaceful Chinese Shrine. A tranquil pocket in Old Phuket Town good for a short meditation session to pay respect. Nice street passage to keep the noise of the bustling Old Town. Its definitely a nice spot to just to be in peace and take photos. No entrance fee, no smoking, and no shoes in the temple.

Ordinary small Chinese temple (Do check out street arts on its wall on the way in)

Nothing much inside the temple. Nothing unique too.

Only the street arts on its wall on the way in are worth your time.

Small shrine in Old Phuket Town
Feb 2018 • Solo
Note that the location on the Tripadvisor map is incorrect, but you can easily find the correct location by grabbing a free map from the tourist office or looking at some of the maps located around the old town district. The shrine is small but quite nice and is worth a quick visit as you explore the area.

Beautiful Chinese Shrine
Nov 2017 • Solo
This is a beautiful Chinese Shrine in the heart of Phuket Old Town. Also known as the Shrine of the Serene Light, this Taoist Temple is a hidden little gem The main entrance is a nondescript narrow gate on the main road. The temple is colourful and very pretty even if all you want is a photo opportunity.
