Thailand is famous for shrine and buddhism, there’s a famous 4 faced buddha statue in the heart of Bangkok. They call it the Thao Maha Brahma, I got no idea what it means and I only know that the buddha has 4 faces and buddhist loves to go there to do some prayers. Everytime my dad visit Bangkok will go there or let’s say praying there is one of the reason we visit Bangkok.
I don’t know why the buddha statue there is so special that have four faces.
It’s in the core of the city, where all the malls and hotels are, there’s a Louis Vuitton at the opposite and next to it there’s a lot of designers’ brand too which located inside the Gaysorn building.
My mom told me that there’s a idiotic or mentally problem people who came to destroy the buddha a few years back. It’s a new one now, had been repaired but on don’t know what reason, they cover it up with a white cloth.
I prayed too but without joss stick because I was busy with camera. The praying comes from heart and not the joss stick. =)
There’s a session where you pay for the holy dancer to dance for the buddha. Frankly, those Thai dance is not my type, but as a good deed for god, dad paid for it too.
I’ll conclude that this is a must go in Bangkok. It seems like I have been talking a lot about temples lately. Don’t you think so? Haha
