The Last Night

My niece and I went to Wat Pathumwanaram in Bangkok for the last night of Songkran.

The elephant is the symbol of Thailand.

Thai people bring sand, Marigold flowers and small flags to the temple. Then they make small sand castle pagodas with them. These are for all the good things coming in the new year.

The big sand castle pagoda was made by a builder with many years of experience.
