Macaque - Monkey Cave Temple - Thailand

This is from my trip to Thailand - Monkey Cave Temple, called Wat Tham Suwankuha by the locals (I think) in Phuket area. This temple is home to hundreds of long-tailed macaques that are more than eager to share your lunch with you. The temple also had a resident monk, who for a fee, would provide you with a blessing and would tie a bracelet around your wrist. At the far end of the cave there was a slippery walkway which led to a further chamber high up behind some rather large stalactites.
