Photo of the Week: Chiang Mai Pagoda

Chiang Mai, Thailand is the city of temples. This is a Pagoda. Also highly prevalent in Chiang Mai. But what does it signify?

In the Buddhist religion, pagodas are considered as an appropriate repository for sacred relics and writings.

It is wrapped in Orange Silk to prove its importance and not allow spirits to take it over.

  1. Gorgeous shot! It has me dreaming of heading back to Thailand – a country I’ve visited more than 10 times :)

    • I’ve been dreaming of returning ever since 2010. I haven’t been back to Asia – but when I do (Hopefully September) it will be my first stop. Thailand will always be my love.
