Wat Prathong, Thalang, Phuket

Todays mission was to find one geocache hidden to Wat Prathong temple at Thalang, Phuket.

 

The location of the cache was in the front of the main temple and there were lots of people around during the Sunday afternoon so at the time I just went inside to take some photos. 

 

There is one quite large sized Buddha image on the middle of the temple. Also other Buddha images, which were covered with leaf gold. Any visitor can buy the gold and add it to the Buddhas. 

I returned to the temple after the sunset to find the cache with flashlight. It was quite interesting hide and could not have found it without checking the hint from the person who hid the cache.
