History


Description

Tham Phra Nang is located on the east side of Tham Phra Nang Beach, on an peninsula between Krabi and Au Nang. It can only be reached by boat from Au Nang.

The cave contains a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva, the Hindu god. It has become a sort of shrine over the years, fishermen are making oblations before going fishing in order to bless the trip for a god catch and a save return.
