Photographer's Note

detail of a buddha statue at the impressive Wat Phra That Phanom, the buddha is sheltered by a many-headed dragon snake, or 'naga'

---

Nāga is the Sanskrit and Pāli word for a deity or class of entity or being, taking the form of a very large snake - specifically the King Cobra, found in Hinduism and Buddhism.

Traditions about nāgas are very common in all the Buddhist countries of Asia. In many countries, the nāga concept has been merged with local traditions of large and intelligent serpents or dragons, nowhere more so than on the banks of the mighty Mekong.
