The Buddhist temple called Wat Saket was build on the top of the 80-meter hill. Because there were no tall buildings around this hill, it stood out as a landmark. Yet it was not so easy to find its entrance. I came to the entrance after coming around the bottom of the hill. To reach the top, you have to climb stairway on foot. The staircase traced a spiral around the hill and was printed in red.

Two women walked ahead of me. Both of them wore mourning clothes. They were in mourning for the former king. During watching, I thought the contrast between her black clothes, vivid umbrellas, and the red stairway was beautiful.
