PHRA WITSAWAKAM

Thai Creator God

Also known as Phra Witsanukam, Phra Vishnukam, พระวิษณุกรรม

A Heavenly Architect

When it comes to building jobs, he had to tackle the biggest — rebuilding Heaven.

This was necessary because the whole place was burnt down by Hanuman during the events of the Ramakien.

The Thai version of Viśvakarman, his name is a combination of Vishnu and Kama. Consequently he likes to think that he thinks like Vishnu and on due reflection can become Kama.
