Doraemon family who will welcome you in the temple? !
At the entrance of the temple, there is a god of "Rahu", a god of Hinduism, which swallow the moon and the sun, causing a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse.
And in the immediate vicinity, there is "Erawan" which has a giant elephant with 3 head, which carried "Pura Inn (God of Indra)".
From here starts a series of surprises, but once you step in the temple, what a Doraemon, Doraemon family, Nobita, Suneo, Gian, Shizuka chan's figure!
Doraemon is very popular in Thailand, but it is rare that all the characters are in a row like this, like this one.
In addition, there were Spider-Man, Deadpool, Pikachu, Goku of Dragon Ball, Mr. Ikkyuu.
It seems that you forget that you are in Thailand because of the popularity of Japanese popular characters.
Nearby, the appearance of a cow to do tambun (thing to do virtue in Thai language).
It is thought that giving food to cows is also an act of accumulating virtue in Thailand.
There was a cow with a rare pinkish color.
Because everyone feeds, I am doing a big body.
The main pink ganesha is here!
A huge pink Ganesha, who will grant wishes at a speed 3 times faster, was in full force powerful appearance. There are many kinds of rats, as if to surround Ganesha.
In the part of the pedestal where Ganesha is settled, Ganesha with different colors and different appearances was enshrined.
The expression is rich.
The figure of a huge snake God narc also
There was also the figure of a huge snake God "Nak" of red and green.
From the fact that Buddha's spirit "Nak" (Indian name "Naga"), which originated in the mythology of India, protected the Buddha's body so that Buddha was not doing wet in the rain when he was doing Zen meditation to open his enlightenment It is regarded as the guardian deity of Buddhism.
In Thailand, the thing of Serpent God and Ryujin is called "nak", and the roof of a famous temple is decorated with "Nak" and it is enshrined as a guardian god.
Next to 'Nak', as a genuine monk 's wax figure was lined up in chairs along the river, it was made me feel relieved. It is very elaborate.
There was a monument of a monk with sunglasses. The sunglasses are strangely decided. Coins are put in the mouth, not just bowls.
There is a shrine next to it, there was a tiger and an inviting cat, an invitation tiger was enshrined. I saw the inviting tiger for the first time!
Stalls where foods can be eaten side by side
There are stalls in the temple, and there are Thai cuisine shops such as Somtam, Pattay, Tai Ramen and Cao Manangai.
It was a clean atmosphere, so it was good.
We ordered Cao Manangai and Cao Mangai Toade at a shop in Cao Manangi.
Birds are juicy taste as prepuri.
Sauce was ginger and red pepper so it was tasty enough to make me want to change again.
Suddenly, a Chinese-style temple appeared
Suddenly, a Chinese-style temple and the gods appeared in front of me, and the sight of a different taste had spread until now through the stall zone.
A temple colored with primary colors such as red, green and yellow, and a magnificent world view surprises the visitors.
There were statues of Kannon Bodhisattva, which are said to be converted into the form of 33 according to the partner in order to save people who are also believed in Japan, India and China.
Also the statue of Hindu god "Brahma" with 4 faces.
"Brahma" is a creation god of Hinduism adored as a god of prosperous business.
Rainbow color "naak" that the unique world view can not stop
Looking at "Nak", it is awesome to the size of the scale and the rainbow color.
The body of "Nak" having a length of several tens of meters was beautiful, and it was coloring which feels unique sensibility.
In addition, it is already 2 body, gold "naak" I am draining water from the mouth.
Unlike Japanese snake God, Ryujin, they are sharp and mechanically facing.
Besides pink Ganesha, it is full of highlight
How was it?
The temple where the gods of Asian countries are enshrined, the scales are big enough to fit in the pictures, and the powerful full marks.
Unlike Japanese temples, there is also a leisure facility-like atmosphere, so I think that you can enjoy people who like photographs, full of photogenic spots.
After praying for pink Ganesha, please slowly go through the temple.
