Situated close to the Railay Beach in Krabi, the Phra Nang Cave is famous for the large number of wooden phallic symbols present here in varying sizes apart from the soothing white sand and magnificent views of Krabi. Considered as a symbol of fertility, people visit the Phra Nang shrine (nestled inside the cave) to offer wooden phallic symbols at the shrine, praying to cure their infertility problems.
Legends have it that Phra Nang Cave is home to Phra Nang, the Princess Goddess, who lives in the cave underneath the cliffs. There are phallic symbols lying in the cave, which itself has an opening in the shape of a vulva. The sizes of phallic symbols vary from several inches to several feet. The cave is also visited by the local fishermen who pray to the Phra Nang Princess to save them from the dangers of the sea. Most tourists visit the Phra Nang Cave to soak in the sun, laze on the white sand beach and relish the stunning Krabi scenery.
