Pud Jor Shrine can be found in Phuket Town. It was constructed well over one hundred years ago in dedication to the calm, gentle and healer Goddess Kuan Im, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy. The Pud Jor Shrine is very popular and busy during Chinese New Year and the Phuket Vegetarian Festival which is held every year during September or early October. It is situated just off a turning off Ranong Road in Soi Phuthon.
