A dragon head in Nan

A Dragon in Nan - Thailand
One of the many famous Dragon / Naga heads featuring at temples in North Thailand. Traditions about nagas are also very common in all the Buddhist countries of Asia. In many countries, the naga concept has been merged with local traditions of great and wise serpents or dragons.

The Buddhist naga generally has the form of a great cobra-like snake, usually with a single head but sometimes with many. At least some of the nagas are capable of using magic powers to transform themselves into a human semblance. For more information about the beautiful Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand.
