Phranang Cave

In the cliff that marks the southern end of Phranang Beach is a small makeshift shrine dedicated to a princess (Phranang) who, according to legend, dies in a shipwreck near this spot sometime around the fourth century BC. Locals leave offerings of food, flowers and ... lots of wooden lingas (phallic symbols). The wooden phalluses are not fertility symbols. Rather, they are to appease the spirit of the virgin princess and thank her for a safe journey.
