Phra Buddha Chinnarat

Wat Yai is famous throughout Thailand for its golden sculpture of the Buddha called the Phra Buddha Chinnarat (Thai: พระพุทธชินราช). Many Thai people consider the Chinnarat to be the most beautiful Buddha portrait in Thailand. It depicts Buddha in the posture of submission. Several faithful copies of the Chinnarat are displayed in other temples, including Wat Benchamabophit in Bangkok and Wat Saranat Thammaram in Rayong. Also, the Chinnarat is depicted on the official seal of the Phitsanulok Province.



The Emerald Buddha

(Thai: พระแก้วมรกต - Phra Kaew Morakot, or official name พระพุทธมหามณีรัตนปฏิมากร - Phra Phuttha Maha Mani Ratana Patimakorn) is the palladium (Thai: ขวัญเมือง kwan meuang; colloquially มิ่งเมีอง ming meuang) of the Kingdom of Thailand, a figurine of the sitting Buddha, made of green jade (rather than emerald), clothed in gold, and about 45 cm tall. It is kept in the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) on the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok.



The Erawan Shrine

(Thai: ศาลพระพรหม, San Phra Phrom) is a Hindu shrine in Bangkok, Thailand that houses a statue of Phra Phrom, the Thai representation of the Hindu creation god Brahma.

The shrine is located by the Grand Hyatt Erawan hotel, at the Ratchaprasong intersection of Ratchadamri Road and in Pathum Wan district, Bangkok, Thailand. It is near the Bangkok Skytrain's Chitlom Station, which has an elevated walkway overlooking the shrine. The area has many shopping malls nearby, including Gaysorn, CentralWorld and Amarin Plaza.



PraPikanet (Lord Ganesha)

In Thailand, Ganesha is worshipped as "PhraPikanet" (พระคเณศ) or "Phra Phikhanesawora" (พระพิฆเนศวร์) and is worshipped as the deity of good fortune and the remover of obstacles. He is associated with the arts, education and trade.

Thai Buddhists frequently pay respect to PraPikanet and other Brahmin deities as a result of the overlaping Buddhist/Brahmin cosmology. He is honored with Motaka, sweets and fruit, flowers, incense and a reverential sawasdee

Ganesha also appears in Buddhism, not only in the form of the Buddhist god Vināyaka, but also portrayed as a Hindu demon form also called Vināyaka. His image may be found on Buddhist sculptures of the late Gupta period. As the Buddhist god Vināyaka, he is often shown dancing, a form called Nṛtta Ganapati that was popular in North India and adopted in Nepal and then into Tibet.
