Familiar Thai Arch: The River Dragon

 Standing splendidly in the midst of a pond filled with flowering waterlilies, this statue welcomes you when you enter the main gate of KMUTT, one of Thailand's leading universities in technology particularly in the field of engineering. This statue is one of the symbols of King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), in Bangkok, Thailand.
 Look how it glows at night-time!
It is surrounded by other images of river dragons.
Now you have a closer look of this ubiquitous arch in Thailand, the legendary river dragon, you often see in the designs of Thai temples (look at my header), shrines, buildings and even Thai boats and barges.
