Although I’m a Roman Catholic, I’ve always been interested in Buddhism. My interest in Buddhism has more to do with its architectural and artistic aspect rather than its ritual components. It’s very interesting to visit Thai temples (Wats) because of the beautiful buildings, colorful prayer halls and other intricate details. Imagine thousands of structures gilded in glaring gold – indeed, a visit to Thailand would not be complete without seeing at least two of them! If I’m not mistaken, there are about 50,000 Buddhist temples in Thailand and even the modest of temples has its own beauty.
