Wathondara,Holy Mother of Earth.

She is known for saving the Gautama Buddha from the evil Mara and his army by wringing water from her hair and washing them away, thus enabling the Buddha’s enlightenment.

She is found all over Southeast Asia, in temples, gardens, in front of businesses, and in the logos of important political parties and military organisations.

This particular Wathondara, aka Phra Mae Thorani (Thailand), sits outside a massage parlor in Jomtien Beach, just a stone’s throw from Pattaya.
