    Buddha Photos

    Never really taken much notice of the Buddha statues, always all looked the same to me, there he is sitting down looking happy with himself as though he has achieved something, today I have been going through my photos and saw there are actually loads of differences in them, these 3 live at Wat Pho in Bangkok, only small ones these ones though.

    Quite nice, needs a lot more gold leaf to finish it off, but the background also looks pretty good in this one, very decorative.



    Some people may say this one is surrounded by tacky rubbish, yeah it is, thats what makes it look so great



    Last but not least, some traditional ones fully covered in gold leaf, again nice background setting for these ones.

    Bangkok temple Wat Suwannaram with Murals

    Now this is a pretty normal Buddha statue, quite an old one, reasonable size, the good thing about this one is the Viharn it is in, all the walls etc are hand painted with murals, these murals are some of the best surviving murals in Thailand, worth a wander round I reckon.

    Biggest indoor Buddha Statue?

    This Buddha statue is big, look at the bottom of the picture and you can see the people, this gives you an idea of how big it really is, barely fits in that building.



    Bangkok Temple Wat Kalayanamit

    Nice little wooden Buddha Statue just being made at the Bangkok Noi Museum, should think they will just varnish this one and not do the gold leaf on it.

    Wat Saket in Bangkok has plenty of Buddha statues to make merit at, take your pick.
