  Wat Rong Khun Ganesha Shrine

 

Thailand

In the back of the premises of Wat Rong Khun (fig.) in Chiang Rai a huge shrine in honour of the popular Hindu god Ganesha, also referred to as Ekatanta (fig.), has been added.

 

The golden shrine, built on a small island in a pond, houses a large bronze image of this deity cast after a sculpture by the artist Chalermchai (fig.), a design that also features on two Thai postage stamps issued in 2013.

See also POSTAGE STAMPS (1), (2) and (3), and TRAVEL PICTURE, as well as THEMATIC STREET LIGHT.
