The Walking Buddha at Wat Sa Si, Thailand

We had a quick stop over at Wat Sa Si (in Sukhothai Historical Park), Thailand which is located just a few hundred meters northwest of Wat Mahathat and built on an island surrounded by a large reservoir known as Tra Phang Tra Kuan.

Wat Sa Si is known for the beautiful Walking Buddha. It is said that building Wat Sa Si began in the late 14th century. It is comprised of a bell-shaped chedi, a virharn (Assembly Hall) and Ordination Hall.Upload from May 27, 2012Beautiful coloured patina on this bronze Buddha image.

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
