Buddha


Thailand is mostly a Buddhist country. There are a few Christians through – out the country and there are Muslims in the southern area as it reaches Malaysia. This golden Buddha face is found in the largest temple in Thailand, just north of Bangkok. On any day, there are thousands of people praying and making offerings. It is truly an amazing sight. Yes, this face is real gold. Knowing Asian uses of gold, I suspect it is 24 karat gold. The light globes in the background are reflections from string of lights that are hung in the temple.
