Phuket Vegetarian Festival at Bang Niaw Shrine

Bang Niaw Shrine is with its 108 years one of the oldest Chinese Shrines in Phuket Town; due to its size and central location, it is also one of the most steeped in tradition and the parade of the Bang Niaw Shrine during the Phuket Vegetarian Festival is a must-see.

Even though today was not the scheduled day for the parade, or any other major event at Bang Niaw Shrine, I went there anyway, as the murky clouds of the past few days were swept away and a clear blue sky helped bring out the bright red and yellow colors typical for the shrines.
