Thai Worship – Part II

Thai Worship – Part II

I finish up the Thai Worship series today. There is a mix of Thai Buddha’s and Chinese gods. There is a strong Chinese influence in Thailand. You will usually see Chinese gods and goddess’s mixed in with the usual Buddha’s and Hindi gods. Thailand is a rather confusing place for Buddhism if you don’t understand the basics of Buddhism and how it evolved out of India and how there is a large Chinese-Thai population.

Gentle Reflections

This is a pool/pond I really don’t know what to call it in a Chinese Temple. It’s near a tourist trap temple complex of the image I posted yesterday. I really like going to the Chinese temple because its calm and quiet and no one is ever around. I think I am going to take a break for the Thailand photos. I am sitting on a backlog of stuff I have shot and since I have moved and started to…
