Road of Spirit Shrines in Thailand

July 14, 2014


Every now and then I come across an unexpected scene while driving around Thailand which makes me want to stop and take pictures. This is such a place that I found while driving in Phetchaburi. I have seen spirit houses alongside a road before, sometimes to mark an accident blackspot or sometimes just abandoned. They usually start with one or two and then soon there are a dozen or so. But this long stretch of road had regularly spaced spirit houses that were obviously put there with a purpose. Maybe someone rich and famous died on this curve?

      It was literally in the middle of nowhere. We we were just driving along a backroad and found it by accident.
