What you'll do

We will appreciate thai culture and religion from the view of architecture. Viharn, Ho Trai, Ubsot and Stupa Chedi are four main architectures that could help us get a closer look at how different religions are immersed in each corner of this royal temple. There are numerous stories and myths to talk about from elements of each architecture. For example, paintings on doors & windows, carvings and decorations on the roof. Those decorations are the best examples for us to appreciate how Thai culture have been formed by the effects of Hinduism, Brahmanism and Theravada Buddhism and Animism. Murals in Laikam Temple, showing the society and life of Thai epic Ramajian, are the exquisite cultural relics that deserve to be in learnt and preserved. At the end, I'll introduce Thai weekday Buddhas to all of you, and explain how Indian astrology and Buddhism are immersed into the belief of Thai nation. I'll let you know how to pray in the most local way for blessings from Your Weekday Buddha. Hope that you will be able to maintain strength, good thoughts and good luck in your life.
