Hanuman On The Door

Hanuman on door

The hanuman was depicted on the door

Shot at Wat Suthat, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand.

The doors in the temple were green-colored. And the mythological stories were drawn on every door. A Hanuman, one of the central characters in the epic Ramayana, was depicted on it. The Hanuman who looked like a monkey seemed to be fighting against the Naga in the painting. Although I couldn't know which story were depicted, it could be one of the stories of Ramayana.

This temple was a Buddhist temple. One the other hand, the deity derived from the Hindu mythology. It was one of the interesting things that Thai Buddhism were very influenced by Hinduism. I often saw the Hanuman in the temples in Bangkok. However, I have never seen the deity in the Buddhist temples in Japan.
