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.

Who is this winged goddess? She hangs out in gardens, and in front of businesses in Thailand. Yet nobody seems to know.

See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil Hairdos. You can buy one of these at the shop a few doors down from our favorite restaurant in Pattaya, Thailand. I think one of the two red headed wigs would go well with a plate of pad thai. #thailife #jomtienpattaya #jimbozfairytalesfromafar #cupofjim (at Or-Ah–Harn-Thai)
