Buddist murals


Buddhist temples almost always have some kind of murals showing the different phases of the life of the Buddha. This room was in the new temple atop Phnom Santuk in Kompong Thom, Cambodia. It's a very colorful room, and I especially like the way the sculpted tree is integrated into the works. More murals can be found at Monday Mural. Photo taken in December 2016.

  10. A nice mix of media depicting the Buddha under the bodhi tree at the moment he achieved enlightenment. All the colors seem to bring light to what must be a dark space. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
