The roof of the hall in Wat Phra Kaeo was vivid

Shot at Wat Phra Kaeo, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand.

Even though the color of gold was not used, the architectures built in Wat Phra Kaeo were vivid. The vivid roofs looked really sharp with the white walls and the blue sky. Although there are some exceptions, the Buddhist architectures in Japan are monotone. So it is uncommon to be used such color. The vivid roofs in this temple were exotic for me.

The coloration depends on the culture. Gautama Buddha didn't leave any wills about the coloration.

The roof in this photo was also colored in orange. Although the doors were rimmed with gold, no gold was used on its roof. Thailand is a hot country. The strong sun shines on the vivid roof. During watching the roofs, I found out one thing. The color might be the same color to Kasaya which was worn by Buddhist monks.
