Palace Statue

Palace Statue

Bangkok, Thailand

يوليو 2007

There are suprisingly few images of women at Thai temples and there are even parts of some of the temples that women are not allowed to enter. There are, however, female monks, or nuns, who also shave their heads and wear robes. However, their robes are lavender, not the traditional orange. I found it a little annoying that they were the ones that did the vacuuming and other housekeeping tasks in the temples.
