The most popular Thai gods

Introduction

The mythology of Thailand is a vibrant and exciting blend of Asian religions, local folklore and musical theater.

Without batting even half an eyelid, Thailand took all the juiciest bits of Buddhism, Thai folklore and Hindu religion and remixed them into a gloriously elaborate mythology all of its own.

Thai Mythology is endlessly invigorating and colorful. Particularly the theater, which includes elaborate costumes, ingenious puppetry and of course the famous Khon masks.

You will also discover some iconic legendary beasts who seem to be the product of some seriously weird genetic experimentation by the scientists at Himmapan Park.
