Bangkok - The Grand Palace and Temples, 2006

14. Garudas at Wat Pra Kaeo

This long gallery of Garudas is outside the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaeo). The Garuda, the symbol of Thai monarchy, is a mythical bird from Thai mythology which is, as here, often pictured in battle against the Naga, a serpent like figure representing the underworld.
