Wat Saket Temple Fair in Bangkok
Nov. 27, 2012 - Bangkok, Thailand - Fried and grilled insects for sale in the food row at the Wat Saket Temple Fair in Bangkok. Wat Saket, popularly known as the Golden Mount or ''Phu Khao Thong,'' is one of the most popular and oldest Buddhist temples in Bangkok. It dates to the Ayutthaya period (roughly 1350-1767 AD) and was renovated extensively when the Siamese fled Ayutthaya and established their new capitol in Bangkok. The temple holds an annual fair in November, the week of the full moon. It's one of the most popular temple fairs in Bangkok. The fair draws people from across Bangkok and spills out in the streets around the temple. (Credit Image: © Jack Kurtz)
