      Wat Mahathat, Ayuthaya, Thailand - Hundreds of Buddha statues were beheaded by the Burmese during their invasion in AD 1767. Ayuthaya was demolished and burned to the ground. Legend has it that the Buddha head in this picture was put in this orientation and encased by the tree roots, a bodhi fig tree. This is a powerful image for Buddhists because Buddha himself is thought to have achieved parinirvana under a fig tree.
