Phuket Vegetarian Festival : 27 September – 05 October 2011

Phuket Vegetarian

The Phuket Vegetarian Festival is an annual event held during the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.

Local residents of Chinese ancestry strictly observe a 9 days vegetarian or vegan diet for the purposes of spiritual cleansing and merit-making.

It is believed that the vegetarian festival and its accompanying sacred rituals bestow good fortune upon those who religiously observe this rite.

Sacred rituals are performed at various Chinese shrines and temples and aesthetic displays such as walking barefooted over hot coals and ascending ladders with bladed rungs are performed by entranced devotees known as “Ma Song”.
