2007之旅(三)--》 Krabi, Thailand ~ Part B

KRABI ~ 樸素的小鎮


KRABI的活動除了吃及逛街之外,我們還參觀了“Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua)” Tiger Cave Temple 是當地的一個旅游景點。在此,穿插一些有關Tiger Cave Temple 的歷史。

The cave temple is aptly named because of the rock outgrowth nearby resembling a tiger's claw. The temple is located about 3km from the town towards North East. Its spectacular setting in the Ao Luk Thanu mountain ranges provides the necessary quiet atmosphere for meditation. The main vihara or the sanctum sanctorum is inside a small shallow limestone cave. Both sides are lined by cells like caves which are called monastic cells or kutis. The area is well lit and very well maintained preserving the serenity of the environment.

There are 1,237 steps to bring you up to the hill. The whole area is full of caves and limestone rock formations. Archeologists have found remnants of ancient habitations as old as from Stone Age. Stone tools, shards of pottery and beads, idols of clay have all been unearthed which bear testimony to the cultural heritage of the area.

一共有1,237個梯級到達頂端。我們用了45分鐘爬到頂端,我上氣不接下氣的... 途中真的很想放棄,可是來到了不能那么容易屈服,所以還是硬著頭皮,努力的往上爬。再用20分鐘下到地面,下來時,雙腳已在不知不覺的戰抖著... 平時甚少運動的我,這才知道運動的重要性。哈哈!

其實,在網站找到的資料並不是我們親眼所看見的洞穴耶!聽聞,那洞穴里有住著沙彌... 可是... 我想還有另一個我們沒去到的地方。(摸不著頭腦)大家可以到這網站看看
