The Friday Photo #137 – Peeking Buddha in Sukhothai

Peeking Buddha, Sukhothai

The ancient city of Sukhothai, in the central north of Thailand, is a ruin-lovers paradise.  It reminded me of a smaller Angkor Wat without the crowds or touts.

Nearing the end of our wandering, we came across what had been described by the ticket seller as the ‘big Buddha’.  I think perhaps ‘peeking Buddha’ would have been a more apt description, or perhaps ‘Buddha with the creepy eyes that follow you as you walk around’.

A less catchy name, perhaps, but one that is a lot more accurate…
