  Ketu in the Hindu 'phra prajam wan' system

 

Thailand

Ketu is one of the nine gods worshipped in the Hindu Phra prajam wan system, together with Rahu.

 

Ketu is placed in the northwest (left, with a reddish gold  piece of cloth), and Rahu in the southwest (right, with a purple cloth). Both have their faces turned southwards and in between stands the god corresponding with the day of the week, facing westwards.
