Im richtigen Moment gesehen, dann wenn die Sonne durch die Decke der Phraya-Nakhon-Höhle in Thailand scheint, wirkt der Ort wie eine Kapelle von Natur. Wobei der dann erleuchtete Pavillon an sich natürlich nicht von der Natur gemacht, sondern von Menschenhand gebaut wurde. Dennoch wirken die Fotos von dort nahezu mystisch.
The Phraya Nakhon Cave is located inside Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park in the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province of Thailand. According to local legend, the cave was discovered around 200 years ago when a local ruler, Nakhon Srithammaraja, was forced to abandon his ship during a storm and found refuge in the cave. Some historians, however, believe the cave was discovered by, or at least named after, a nobleman called Nakhon, who lived in the region in the 17th century.
Either way, the cave has long been a treasured natural attraction along the northern part of the Malay Peninsula. When sunlight floods into the cavern, it illuminates the cave’s stalagmites and stalactites, and the lush green trees that lean toward the light from the sandy floor below. It’s a serene and mystical sight, and one deemed fit for kings.
