Being the exploring step counters that we are, Gracie and I headed toward the northern part of the island to the Chinese Temple and Buddha’s Footprint.
Along the way, I came across a cave and wanted to show you, based upon my VERY limited experience and knowledge on the process, how I’ve come to appreciate small portions of the “ceremony” of prayer and giving merit. NOTE: the process that I show in this video is but a SMALL subset of the process of giving merit and asking Buddha for good luck, etc.
Hope you enjoy it.
(the following info is taken from our recommended Koh Sichang website:

“North of the harbor is a Chinese Temple known as Saan Chao Pho Khao Yai or Shrine of the Father Spirit of the Great Hill. Discovered during the Ming Dynasty by Chinese seafarers it still attracts thousands of Chinese pilgrims from Thailand and across Asia. The temple gets especially busy during Chinese New Year when boatloads of Chinese Buddhists attend on pilgrimage. The Father Spirit is a large rock inside a cave that has naturally worn into the shape of a human figure.
Other shrines within the temple are dedicated to the famous monkey that accompanied Hsuan Tsang during his pilgrimage from China to India during the seventh century and Guan Yin ‘The Goddess of Mercy’.
Next to the temple is a steep pathway with over 500 steps leading to another magnificent shrine housing a copy of the Buddha’s footprint. There are panoramic views from the shrine across the island and the sea towards the mainland.
In upcoming videos, Gracie and I “ring the bell three times to let the mountain Gods know you’ve arrived…”
Thanks for watching and Stay Tuned!!!
