When Buddha was meditating under the bodhi tree and was tempted by the demon Mara, the earth goddess Phra Mae Thorani was summoned. She came to help and used the water she carried in her long hair to wash away Mara’s armies so people have been thankful ever since, hence this shrine on Kao Tut at Phuket island.
