..there be dragons<br>Chiang Mai, Thailand: Various Chiang Mai Wats, Chiang Mai, Thailand
: Statues; Temples.


Note the small figure clasping the dragon's breast. Now take a close look at this image to the left (the thumbnail for the preceding image in this series) and notice that it also protectively clutches a small figure (infant dragon?). I don't know if whether this symbolizes anything, but the dragons guard buildings at two different Wats so I'm presuming it's no coincidence.

The mentioning "stupas" is not correct. They are named "chedi".
