Tha Rua Shrine, a temple of dragons, Phuket

We don’t know a lot of this Chinese temple in Phuket but driving by on the Thepkrasattri Road, the Tha Rua Shrine looked impressive in all its colors. There was nobody around, we stopped to take some pictures of the shrine and dragons.

In my imagination and a fan of Game of Thrones it made me think of the Mother of Dragons. Kristel keeps the two behind her on a tight leach, no worries at all. Enough jokes now, I really liked the little stone dragon looking into the fire vase. You could almost feel it burning.

We weten niet veel van deze Chinese tempel in Phuket maar toen we langsreden op Thepkrasattri Road, leek de Tha Rua Shrine indrukwekkend met al zijn kleuren. Er was niemand aanwezig, we hielden halt om enkele foto’s van de tempel en de draken te maken. 

In mijn verbeelding en als liefhebber van Game of Thrones deed dit me denken aan de Moeder van Draken. Kristel houdt de twee draken achter haar goed onder controle, geen redenen tot ongerustheid. Maar genoeg gegrapt, bij de kleine stenen draak aan de aarden pot kon je werkelijk het vuur en rook voelen.
