The colorful Gods of Thailand

PHRA ATHIT

Thai Sun God

Also known as Phra A-thit, PHRA-ADIT, Phra Arthit, Phra Artit, พระอาทิตย์

Transplanted Sun God

He is the Thai version of Surya the Hindu solar deity. Like his Hindu colleague, he is the father of a little monkey — in this case Sukreep.

In the Thai scheme of things, his special day is Sunday. If you were born on a Sunday it is his fault.

Auspicious color: red.
