RE: Wat Rong Suea Ten, one of the popular tourist destinations in Chieng Rai province, in the North of Thailand

Wat Rong Suea Ten temple very similar to some of Sri Lankan tamil kovils. But bigger differences with architecture. In our country I couldn't see dragon symbol. But Thailand temple's has many dragons and lotus flowers. The Buddha statue very clever and nice to see it. I like blue and yellow color combination here. Nice images under the rained.

I much appreciate your nice comment and for your stopping by.

It's great to know that this temple is very similar to some of Sri Lankan Tamil kovils. As far as I know, the dragon symbol came from the Chinese belief, so some Thai-Chinese temples in Thailand have the dragon images. In the meantime, the ones in this temple are called "Nagas" (giant serpent), it's from our Thai belief.

I'm happy that you like the blue and yellow color combination and the images under the rained. Me, too! ;)
