One of the most amazing things about Thailand was the various temples scattered throughout the country. This particular place moved me on an emotional and spiritual level. I took many pictures there, and will be discussing them below. Keep in mind that I wasn’t able to take pictures of the titular Buddha due to the amazing importance to Buddhism and Thai culture. Now, let’s begin this spiritual adventure!
(This was the view of the temple from the outside, and it completely blew me away. The preservation of the temple is incredible, and its elegant design makes it a very popular monument.)
(As we travel into the temple, there are many Buddhas scattered around, and each of them look different. This photo is of one of these Buddhas, and it seems to emit a serene aura. Also, behind it is a tower made out of pure gold. It’s nearly too beautiful for words.)
(This fearsome looking creature is known as a Yaksha. Yaksha are sacred guardians of temples that ward off bandits.)
(Here’s another picture of the interior. As you can see, many people came to the temple, to admire and respect the Buddhas. I absolutely adore the gold plated towers, and have never seen anything like it before.)
(This particular picture is of the decor of the Grand Palace. The roof looks as if it were made out of dragon scales or ribbon candy. If you look closer, you can see the dragon insignia on each arch way.
(This final picture is of a golden walkway that leads to another Buddha. As you can see, the structures seem completely untouched for thousands of years.)
