Paradise is full of surprises

Standard

This deserves a blog post all of its own. Strolling down Phra Nang, I was greeted with the most unique shrine I have ever come across. I’d remembered reading about it somewhere, but had no idea it was here!

Can you tell what it s yet?

So yeah, it’s basically a cave full of penises. That’s right.

Apparently there was once a beautiful Indian princess who was killed in a shipwreck and washed up to shore. Local fishermen believe that her spirit dwells in the cave and so they make her offerings of phallic symbols to protect them not only from dangers out at sea, but also in hope of fertility. This explains it better…

Not sure what this one is all about!

Anyway it was a nice surprise to what was already pure paradise. If I was an Indian princess killed at sea, I would definitely be happy residing here for all of eternity.
