We have learned that the Thai people are very spiritual, and adore their Buddha images. Each of them is distinctive, and many we've seen are very, very old. We visited two such historical sites today, one of them active, and one a beautifully preserved collection of ancient ruins. We also visited a foundry where artisans craft new Buddha images, keeping alive a tradition that goes back hundreds of years.
