Thai Mythology

The colorful Gods of Thailand

KHRUT

Thai Sun God

Also known as ครุฑ

A migrated bird creature

This is more or less a non-de-plume for Garuda. He must have been flying too far from India and gotten stuck. Or does he migrate during the winter eons?

Either way, Khrut has definitely found a warm welcome in Thailand. He is a national treasure. They love him so much, they even put him on the official flag of Thailand.
