NATURE & GASTRONOMY

  

 

 

  bodhi tree

 

Thailand

Since the Buddha reached Enlightenment seated under a bodhi tree, this tree is often found in temple yards, as seen here in Wat Sri Sawai in Sukhothai (picture on the left) and at a temple in Chonburi (picture below).

 

The tree also is often depicted in Buddhist art (fig.). See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
