Chofa

from 350.00

Among the many temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is a unique place. It is located high on Doi Suthep Mountain, about 15 km from town, offering fantastic views of the city. Each visitor must climb the 309 steps up to the pagodas.

On this frame we see the elegant roof finials (or Chofas) in silhouette against the dramatic late afternoon sky. "Chofa literally means “bunch of air”, but is often poetically translated as “tassel of air”. These are placed on top of the sweeping roofs of a bot (monks’ congregation hall) or vihan (worship hall). Although they vary in style, they all possess an elongated ‘s’ shape, which is suggestive of an animal form. Often the appearance is of a bird-like creature with a graceful horn."
