Guardians of Wat Pho

Information about the guardian statues is difficult to find as there are no inscriptions around the site. Some of them have top hats and walking sticks, others look like ancient wizards, warriors or animals. These statues adorn not only the sixteen entrances to Wat Pho, but many of the chapels as well. I believe their origin to be China or at least Chinese in nature. Regardless of where the came from, they are very impressive.
