Street Processions through Phuket Town


Phuket Vegetarian Festival Street Processions through Phuket town. The entire town resembles a war zone due to the nonstop explosions from the firecrackers and all of the smoke they generate.

Tha Rua Shrine, Phuket Vegetarian Festival

The Phuket Vegetarian Festival

 This morning I had the good fortune to be able to visit the Tha Rua Shrine outside of Phuket town. Needless to say, I am not normally exposed to imagery such as this but I found the experience fascinating to be able to watch the piercing and other rituals being performed inside the temple.  This devotee prepares himself for the long procession to and from town that he and other members of this shrine endure.

Macha Bucha is a Buddhist holy day and marks a point in history when 1,250 of the Lord Buddha's followers gathered to hear his sermon.

Worshipers walk three times around temples in a bid to make merit.
