  Reflection Chedi Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang

 

Thailand

The chedi (fig.) of Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang in Lampang reflected in reverse on the inner wall of the temple's mondop, by the sunlight that penetrates through a hole in the wooden fronton above its door (fig.).

 

 

This phenomena, known as camera obscura, is also found in the temple's Vihaan Phra Phut (fig.), where the chedi reflects on a piece of cloth through a crack in the  wooden sidewall of the edifice.
