New Years day at Wat Saman Rattanaram

One Thai tradition I enjoy is their New Years Day merit making at Temple. Today we travel 2 hours east from our house and visit Wat Saman Rattanaram to welcome in the new year.

Wat Saman Rattanaram is known as home to Thailand’s largest image of Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity of the Hindu pantheon. He reclines on a pedestal on the river bank. Ganesha at Wat Saman Rattanaram is bright pink, creating a miraculous visual against a backdrop of a clear blue sky.

Don’t forget to check out the photo reel here:
