Wat Phra Mahathat Woromaha Vihan Buddhist Temple, Nakhon Si Thammarat

Chedi at Wat Phra Mahathat Buddhist Temple in Nakhon si ThammaratMany people see the name of this temple on our site and don’t know anything about it. Here is some information you might find helpful as you think about which amulets to buy.

Jatukam Ramathep amulets originated in this temple twenty-seven years ago. Most of the Jatukams we sell from Wat Mathathat were made in the Buddhist year 2550. This year we are coming up on 2557.

Jatukham Rammathep style amulets were incredibly popular in 2550. There were a number of stories that came out in the local Thailand media about people wearing Jatukam Ramathep amulets who were robbed at gun and knife-point, but who had extraordinary good luck as the bullets would not fire from the gun pointed at them, or the knife blade would not pierce their skin. Thais attributed this protection to the powers of the Jatukam amulets and a mad dash to purchase Jatukams fueled the nation for a few years. There were many robberies by criminals looking to possess other people’s Jatukam amulets. Many deaths and injuries occurred during these robberies. So much so, that the supreme Buddhist patriarch (monk) in Thailand removed himself from the process and refused to provide sacred materials for the amulets any longer. For some people this dropped the bottom out of the amulet craze, and for others, they just refocused on the original amulets only made in the city they originated, Nakhon Si Thammarat, in southern Thailand next to Surat Thani.

In 1987 the first Jatukam Ramathep amulets were developed and named for the two princes of the Srivijaya kingdom of southern Thailand (which also once included Malaysia). There are stories about the name being from the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, popular among Mahayana Buddhists of Malaysia and southern Thailand. The man starting these amulets was not a monk, but a highly revered police chief in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Khun Pan, or, Khun Phantarak Rajjadej. He believed that the Jatukam amulet he wore helped him solve a murder case.

Khun Pan died in the Buddhist year 2550. After he passed away on September 5, the Jatukam Ramathep amulets grew in popularity because of some stories I mentioned about people protected from harm that were wearing the amulets.

Wat Mahathat produced a number of special edition amulets, and some solid silver Khun Pan amulets (which we sell at ThaiAmuletSales.com) under the Jatukam Amulets section.

The Jatukam production didn’t stop there. Soon temples across the entire nation were consumed with producing as many different types of Jatukam amulets as possible. Simple clay amulets were selling for 3,000 to 5,000 Thai Baht. This is around $100 to $170 USD. Many amulets were selling for 30,000 to 100,000 Thai Baht for special editions. For Thais to spend $1,000 to $3,000 USD on amulets is really something, but many Thais did so, even taking loans out to afford such amazing amulets. Estimates put sales of Jatukam Ramathep in 2007 at over $650 million dollars US.

The desire for these amulets went unchecked. In April of 2550 a woman was killed in a stampede to make reservations for a new batch of special Jatukam amulets being manufactured by the monks at the Wat Mahathat temple in Nakhon. As a result, Thailand’s supreme patriarch, Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara, (secular – Charoen Khotchawat) stopped helping to create the powerful amulets.

Here is the next group of images of amulets we found at Wat Mahathat Buddhist temple in Southern Thailand. This temple is the home of the Jatukam Ramathep amulets.

This is one of the original styles of Jatukam amulets from the Wat Mahathat temple. Most Jatukams are in this style and arrangement. There are few of these available at the temple any longer. Supplies are dwindling.

Thai Buddha Amulets in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?

Tower at night in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.Recently we took a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Penang Island. We walked around a lot and we were surprised that we found no Thai amulets, no Buddhist amulets for sale at any shop in those two cities. There must be some, but we just didn’t happen to see any shop dedicated to selling Buddha, Kwan Yin, or Ganesh amulets.

We did see some jade shops, and we actually bought a couple of items at one of these shops. The jade quality wasn’t so great, but the price was right.

If you are living in Malaysia and you want to start an amulet business, just get in contact with us and let us know what your budget is for buying amulets from us. We will give you as many different kinds as possible for the amount you spend, that way you can see what sells and what doesn’t.

Malaysia has 28 million people living in the country and 20% are Buddhist according to Wiki’s stats. Over 5 million Buddhists and many of them are buying amulets or don’t know where they can go and preview and browse amulet collections. We have many orders for Buddha amulets from Malaysia, and yet I think we could sell a lot more through a small shop or stand located in a mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city.

If anyone is interested in this, and you speak English well enough to communicate and resolve business issues, then let us know. Email:

A top selling amulet we are happy to find more inventory of. We have 3 of these Luang Phor Tuad Jatukam style gold on gold amulets. The one in this photo seems like maybe some of the Chinese zodiac animals are missing on the top. They have probably faded. The others we have are in great shape and we won’t sell you this one, unless you choose it. Item #JATLPT29. $59.95

20140314_131407

20140314_131414

 

This is a new color scheme for a Luang Phor Tuad Jatukam style amulet from the temple. We found this in a bag of Jatukams that was under the counter. We insisted it was under there, but they didn’t believe us until they looked. We remembered exactly where it was from the previous time we bought amulets there about a year ago. Sometimes they are resistant to sell their Jatukam amulets at the Wat Mahathat temple because they realize they are becoming more and more rare. This means we have to redouble our efforts to find them and offer them here before the good ones disappear. You can have this case, or let us know to change the case to a traditional stainless steel silver case and we’ll do that at no cost. Item #JATBLU7. $69.95.

This was an unexpected find, an oval shaped silver (pewter?) Luang Phor Tuad amulet with a nice gold case. We have never seen this amulet before, but more importantly, nothing like this style of Luang Phor Tuad before. We only have a couple of these. Item #LPTOVAL7. $69.95.

Silver, red, pink, blue Jatukam Luang Phor Tuad amulet in an ornate gold plated case. This is another unique color set we haven’t seen before. I think we have 3 of these amulets available now. If you like any of these on this page, purchase now because our Jatukam style amulets have been going so fast and we won’t be able to purchase any more like this once they are gone. Item #JATPRB2. $69.95.

This is probably our favorite Luang Phor Tuad amulet in stock right now. We bought just two of these. They were expensive, and yet we really wanted to have a solid silver Luang Phor amulet in stock for you! We may keep one of these for ourselves, so we definitely have at least one to sell. These are rare and we have not seen this iteration before. Item #LPTSILV7. $139.95

This was another great find, we have never seen this amulet offered anywhere. This is a tricolor Luang Phor Tuad oval amulet set in a gold plated case. The reverse is intricately designed as well. One of our best LPT amulets! We have 2 of these. Item #LPTOV55. $$79.95.

This one we have offered before. It is a bronze figurine Luang Phor Tuad amulet set in a gold plated case. This is a heavy pendant that may not be all that comfortable to wear, but could be better placed on a shrine with your Buddha or other historical Buddhist figures. Item #LPT744. $34.95.

New Batch of Good Luck Takrud Amulets

Here are some photos of some Takrud amulets (rolled scrolls) that we have not yet put on the site for sale. Takruds are rolled up scrolls of bark, paper, brass leaf, gold leaf, silver leaf, tin, cloth, animal skin, or something else that can be written on or engraved upon. Takruds have a long history in Thailand and you can find people wearing them in all walks of life. These are good luck amulets and give the wearer some comfort in knowing that things will be going their way as much as possible.

The prayers and symbols on the inside are created by the monks that write them, and they are chanted over in mass chantings before being sold at the Buddhist temples in Thailand. Often times there is a certain symbolic nature to the takruds and the same symbols are used on each one sold at a specific temple (wat).

The takruds below are all fairly weatherproofed, but if you swim with them or subject them to water repeatedly, they will leak. It is better to respect the amulet and take it off before your shower or swimming. All the metal takruds will discolor over time, it is a natural function of the metal. Few metals don’t change due to high temperature, humidity, exposure to salty skin, etc.

If you are interested in one or more of these, just email us for information on price – letting us know the item number. You can have free necklace, bracelets, and shipping on all our Takrud amulets.

2,300 Buddhist Amulets and Counting…

We still have over 2,300 Thai amulets that we need to sell! We are considering another massive sale this Summer, same as our usual annual sale, but not sure how to go about it. Ideally we would sell the amulets by the tray – there are 40 amulets per tray. Problem is, the cost of each would be a lot for individuals that wanted to take advantage of the amulet sale. Those looking to buy bulk items would be really very happy because we could offer forty amulets at a time for a deep discount – around 50%.

Our main site is: Thai Amulet Sales >

Our Shop is: Thai Amulet Sales at Shopify >

We looked at our statistics for the past 6 years, and the growth of visitors coming to our tiny site has really grown steadily. Business too is going along well. Still, we are considering selling the website so we can better focus on some other projects that are doing even better than this business. Filling amulet orders isn’t difficult, and it isn’t very time consuming either, but it does take us away from our other pursuits.

If you would like to talk about purchasing this business – let us know. The price would be under $30,000 USD. This takes into account a multiple of monthly net and our amulet, necklace, bracelet, and other items in inventory. Another scenario is, if we don’t sell the business, we need to ramp it up considerably so we have a reason to focus on it. Ideally the sales would be about 3x what they are now. This would give us a good reason to continue the site because it would grow to a size that makes it our primary income business. If you would like to talk about investing in the business, let us know too.
