  Asokaramaya Buddhist Temple

 

Sri Lanka

On the inside, the Asokaramaya Buddhist Temple in Colombo (fig.), has many colourful murals and bas-reliefs, depicting figures from Buddhism.

 

Amongst the murals is a depiction of the Buddha seated on the ground, with a naga coiled around him and its hood covering his head, a pose reminiscent of a certain interpretation of pahng nahg prok (fig.).
