7 Ho Trai Library at Wat Hua Kuang in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Buddhist temples in Thailand usually have a ho trai that house the holy Tripitaka scriptures. Typically these libraries are very elaborate and this one at Wat Hua Kuang is an excellent example. The hornlike finials above the two-tiered red roof are called chofas which represent the garuda. Also notice the ornate, gilded windows and the ceramic relief of a Yaksha demon holding a sword.
