Man Digging A Grave

Man digging grave

The man dug a hole in the graveyard

Shot at Mahanak Cemetary in Bangkok, Thailand.

Although most of Thai people are Buddhist, there are also other believers. Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Taoist, Christian and others lived in Thailand. Thailand has a religious diversity much more than Japan. However, it was not easy to find the evidence during walking around the city of Bangkok because the Buddhists were an absolute majority.

Against that background, I found a small Muslim community during rambling along. There was a mosque in the backstreet and a graveyard was beside it. When I walked along the fence of the cemetery, I felt as if I was being watched by someone. And I found two men in the burial ground. They talked to me, so I decided to enter the graveyard.

One man was standing in the hole. He was just digging a grave. Unlike Buddhist, Muslim are buried in the ground. Many memorial markers were put around the hole. Approaching him, he stopped digging and looked at me.
