Ganesha Park, Nakhon Nayok, Thailand

Ganesha is called Phra Pikanet or Phra Phikanesuan in Thai. Ganesha Park in Nakhon Nayok has two of the largest Ganesha statues in Thailand. The first figure shows Ganesha in a sitting position. He is holding his broken tusk in one hand. In his other hands he has what appears to be a Sai, an ancient weapon,  a rope noose and a bowl. In front of the sitting Ganesha is a mouse. It is said that Ganesha uses the mouse  to communicate with his followers. Ganesha park is an impressive tribute to the Hindu God Ganesha. The second figure is a reclining Ganesha. Although Ganesha is a Hindu God he is also revered by Thai Buddhists.

I first visited the park in 2011 when it was still under construction and have made several visits since, as it is close to mo home in Nakhon Nayok, Thailand.
