On this other postcard, the young Buddhist novice monks are shown paying respect to Buddha image's head in Ayutthaya, Thailand. Ayutthaya is from the Indian word, Ayodhya, which is the birthplace of Rama in Ramayana.



  1. Wow, two really beautiful images! Quite exotic for me.

    1. I love seeing monks. I don't know why. There was one time I chased a monk in Hong Kong just so I can have a photo with him...
