Wat Phra Nang Sang(Seng)

The oldest temple in Phuket dating over 500 years old hosts this Annual Market each year. It is a mix of old and new , the temple  its exact age unsure has been renovated and rebuilt in parts over that time. One story says a powerful southern Thai ruler had the temple built for his wife. Another story says that the temple was built-in honour of a princess who was due to be executed, although she had been framed and was innocent. When she was executed she bled white blood, thus showing her purity. The temple is also called Wat Luad Khao (White Blood Temple).At that time Thalang was the main town in Phuket.

Tonight it is hosting some amazing Thai Food and we are awed at the site of some lovely statues and buildings. The food includes insectsSAM_7518SAM_7491 of all sorts which are a delicacy here, Thai sausagesSAM_7516 of all sorts, glorious sweet dishesSAM_7494SAM_7513 to tempt your palate and so much more.SAM_7490Quail spit roasted.
