Bangkok’s many temples incorporate the mandatory guardians.
They have stylized lions, called shishi in China, which are thought to have magical powers to repel evil spirts.
Yaksha, a fierce but benevolent nature spirit introduced to Buddhism from Hinduism. He is charged with taking care of precious things.
We encountered a few other guardians which I will cover off next time. The decorations were amazing.
