About Us and Contact

 

If you have any comments, and they are most welcome, you can contact us.

With Buddha-Images.com we try to give an overview of Buddha images in Thailand, with emphasis on the different postures and gestures of the Buddha (and their explanation). Furthermore, we give examples of Buddha images during the different periods of Thai history.

We tried to provide accurate content, by always double checking information, and when in doubt, not presenting it. However, if there are inaccuracies, please let us know.

We will keep on adding interesting Buddha images, and will later on also develop a searchable database.
