2 Panca Rupa at Dhammikarama Burmese Temple in Pulau Tikus, Malaysia

An intriguing display at the Dhammikarama Burmese Temple is named Guardian Protectors of the World. The two creatures holding the globe combine the powerful features of several animals. These include the trunk and tusks of an elephant, the hooves of a horse, the scales of a carp, the face of a dragon (toenayar) and the wings of a garuda, the mythological king of birds. The Greek term for a multifaceted creature like this is a chimera.
