#48 Marigold garlands in Bangkok
We went to visit an old traditional Thai home....all made of wood now a museum. It is a really beautiful house, made in traditional Thai style, all in wood, full of priceless treasures, surrounded outside by a lush garden, full of amazing orchids and plants and ofcourse the traditional pond with lotus blooming! In the north east corner is this little temple that houses the Gods! The belief in Thailand is that all homes have a temple for the local Gods and this protects the home and keeps everyone safe. The temple has to be built on the north east part of the property, so that the shadow of the house doesn't ever fall on it....or the gods will get angry! The wonderful bright mariglod garlands and white flowers adorning the wooden temple, surrounded by a forest of greenery in its many shades, including an overhed hanging 'bird of paradise', certainly caught my eye and made a pretty picture.
