Unique Chinese Shrines in Phuket – Bang Neow Shrine

For many Centuries, China has shared a rich history with Thailand. Long ago, people from Southern China came to Thailand and many of them settled in Phuket. With them, they brought their traditions and culture, and today these influences can be seen in the day to day lives of Thai people on the Island.

Chinese Religions are usually a mixture of Buddhism and Taoism and there are many fascinating Chinese Temples and Shrines around Phuket for Tourists to discover. They can usually be identified by their red and yellow motifs, as well as imagery of dragons, lions and monkeys. The Bang Neow Shrine is one of many places of worship that you might come across in your travels.

Bang Neow Shrine

This fascinating Shrine is known by a few names. Its other appellations are Tao Buang Keng and the Thep Rasi Foundation Shrine. Erected in 1904, the shrine was originally connected to another shrine at Soi Romanee in the Old Town, but has since been moved around due to fires that kept occurring within close proximity to the shrine’s locations.

The Bang Neow shrine is very long and contains many doors. The interior is lined with color printings on the walls that recount stories from Chinese Literature. The Dragon motif is ubiquitous in the Bang Neow Shrine, Dragon carvings and paintings can be seen all throughout the building.

The Bang Neow Shrine is now located on Phuket Road at the Bang Neow intersection and is open daily from 8:30 to 22:00. It is one of the many Chinese shrines on the island, worth checking out.
