The Big – headed Ghost Cave or the Skull Cave is located in Mo 2, Ban Bo Tho, Krabi Province’s Ao-luk District.
The villagers here call it the Skull Cave because in 2497 B.E skulls were found in the cave. It is a limestone cave with stalagmites and stalactites. Cave paintings also found on the roof and the walls of the cave.
Compared to other caves in the South of Thailand, this cave is believed to have the largest number of mural paintings. The painted murals in the cave can be divided into three main categories: Those in the shape of human beings and animals ; nonhuman being ; and those shaped like a hand and foot. A variety of colors was used in painting such as red, black, yellow and brown.
These cave paintings are of immense archaeological value. They can be regarded as a convincing evidence that around 3,000 years ago there was a prehistoric community on the coast of Andaman Sea, who relieved on natural resources in this area of foot and shelter.
