I observed that Chatukam/Jatukam Amulet is a big hit in Malaysia right now. The are many people that have obtain this amulet.
Personally I didn’t have any of this amulet and don’t know much about it, however, here is some information from the web about the Jatukarm:
Once upon a time, many centuries ago (about 1700 years ago), it was a time of war and trouble. There lived a king and his princes. The elder prince named Jatukam and the other named Ramathep. After many years of war, the King finally conquered and managed to secure Sri Lanka into part of his Kingdom. There was a saying that the King possessed a sacred treasure, this was none other than the Holy relics of Lord Buddha. Before the King began his journey to the newly conquered land, he tasked the protection of the Relics to his two princes. And ordered them to guard it with their lives.
Some time later, the princes received information of plan by the enemy to capture the Relics. They immediately informed the King in Sri Lanka. The King instruction was to quickly bring the Relics via sea and head to Sri Lanka. Halfway through the journey, a thunderstorm stroke and their ships were sunken. Except the two princes, the rest of the crews did not survive.
The two princes were washed ashore, but well. Without the sea transport, they could no longer bring the Relics to Sri Lanka. They started praying sincerely to the Relics “Dear Enlighten One! If this land we step upon is a holy piece of land, then please guide us let us live a new life here. With our people, we shall guard and protected your Relics forever.”
Later the two princes built a temple on this holy land and with much hardwork, they also establish a wealthy and strong city. They brought new hope and peace to all the people. In remembrance to the great deeds by the two princes, they named this place Nakon Si Thammarat in their honour. This is now located at Southern of Thailand at present time. The temple that the two princes built for the Relics is Wat Mahathat, as it is known now.
Ever since then, after a few century, many people had travelled to Wat Mahathat to locate the Relics that were buried by the princes. Finally, they found a stone craving and the Relics buried at the Wat. The stories of the two princes were found engraved on this stone.
The two princes had done many great deeds and the greatest is by erecting the temple to house the Relics. And they promised to guard the Relics with their lives. They had earned respect from both the heavenly and earthly beings. Later, the people combined the two princes into one and named Tao Jatukam Ramathep, when praying to him. Tao Jatukam Ramathep becomes one of the most respected and popular deity in the South of Thailand. In olden days, Tao was used to address the noble one. It is believed that those that pray to Tao Jatukam Ramathep will be blessed with fulfilling life and better in all aspects in everyday work.
In Malaysia, there are many place that someone can get the Jatukam amulet. One of the place is the Chetawan Temple . I went there and saw there are some that avaiable… If anyone like to have a look, you may try to go there.
Here is some photo of the Chatukam that I take during the visit:
