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 insects of all sorts which are a delicacy here, Thai sausages of all sorts, glorious sweet dishes to tempt your palate and so much more.Quail spit roasted. Lovely fresh vegetables to make a delicious papaya Salad or Som Tam as it called in Thai
I could go on tempting your taste buds as there was soooooo much lovely fresh food. Bamboo filled with black and white sticky rice. Delicious squid dipped in an amazing, hot chilli sauce. Our senses and taste buds were just zinging!
That’s all for now, in another post I will tell you more about this lovely temple but for now I will leave you maybe wishing you were here.
Stay safe, laugh a lot and be happy..Love you all 😉
