Thonburi, Bangkok. December 2013.

Kuan Yu Shrine, Thonburi.

 

The Kuan Yu Shrine is dedicated to the ancient Chinese god of war, a legacy of the early Chinese immigrants who settled in the village of Bangkok during the Ayutthaya era.

 

Kuan Yu, an ancient Chinese general in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, played a pivotal role in the civil wars among the warring kingdoms of China. The best-known general in Chinese history, he was immortalized in the Chinese classic "Romance of the Three Kingdoms."

 

Old KY has a chest and belly button hair issue. Least to mention some pretty scary man boobs.
