Comes beauty..



Story goes, in 1767 the Burmese attacked Ayatthuya, in Thailand, and as another act of disrespect, chopped all the heads off every Buddha. This one ended up in the roots of the bodhi tree. Just can't really believe that was a coincidence.

What an incredible tale. What an impressive sight. Sometimes, you have to believe that all mystery has not leeched out of the world don't you?
