The photographs here were taken at the Ubosot in Wat Chedi Ngam in Fang. They cover the outside walls of the building, and illustrate both the devotion to the King found in many temples, and also the zodiacal animals which originated in China, but in the Thai imagination have some small variations. Inside the Ubosot are some fine modern murals, which I have included in a separate album.
