I've seen giantic reclining Buddhas in Chiang Mai and Hat Yai as well. Amazing Thailand. Great shots.

Gold?
I want to go to Thailand too... this is beautiful. I'm glad to see one of the Buddha reclining, what a gorgeous face.

Do you have any photos of archways in Morocco, you know how the mosaics are there, and often one archway can be seen through several others.
I am very interested in mosaics.
