There are always rooms for gods no matter how crowded Bangkok is. Habitats of gods and spirits can be anywhere in any forms: elaborate shrines, old spirits houses, or even temporary set ups. They show how people spiritually relate to the lands and the offerings reflect the strong bonds between the both worlds, convenient ways to comfort their souls.

  1. You have wonderful photos. I am a restaurant manager, but I am a photographer also, and I have been blessed with two visits to Thailand. My first visit was in 1992, and I was able to visit again in 1997. I fell in love with the kingdom, even though I only experienced Bangkok and an island known as Kho Phra Thong and some places in between. I plan on going back to Thailand next year on a mission to collect images of Thai spirit houses that would display a greater range of diversity for different regions, communities, families, etc. In North America, some Native Americans do not want photos taken of themselves. I want to be respectful of all the Thai people, and their spirits. I would like to know what I should and should not photograph.

    Thank you,

  2. Hi Josiah,

    Thank you for your visit to this site. Thailand trip was a big event for me last year. Most of the time I stayed in Bangkok even though there were a lot stories I can pick from.

    I find that Thais are not really fuzzy of being photographed. I’m sure they are happy to pose some picture for you. For the religion places, only indoor in a shrine or a temple that are restricted to cameras. Respect is the key to rid of your anxiety. I always Wai to the place when I approach the area. That way you show your regards physically and spiritually.

    It’s be interesting what you’ll get from the trip. Good luck. Do you have some images to share to world?
