Ganesha Park Nakhon Nayok


My friends and I visited Ganesha Park in Nakhon Nayok not long ago. The Ganesha statue there is supposed to be one of the largest if not the largest in Thailand. Ganesha or Phra Pikanet as he is known in Thailand is known as the remover of obstacles. He is usually evoked before any ceremony in Hinduism and for some even before meditation. To learn more about Ganesha read this article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha It took us about 2 hours by car to reach Nakhon Nayok from Bangkok.  Here are some of our pics. 






























We found some beautiful Ganesha amulets there. We have listed some below for rental (purchase). All these amulets were blessed by the Chief Abbot of the Temple personally as visible in one of the photos above.
