Other decorations are included in concentric rings on the tympanum where a star pattern is found at the center. The designs range from zoomorphic to geometric motifs, but all are interpretable as fertility symbols, and the booming of the drum, whether set on the ground or suspended by its handles is likened to the roar of distant thunder or the bellow of a bullfrog, harbingers of rain.

We are constantly amazed by how many things there are to do in Chiang Mai. I have put together a list of things to do that isn’t offered anywhere else in the world other than Chiang Mai. Hopefully, this will help plan the perfect trip a bit easier! Swim In The Old Quarry lake While in exploring the fourth biggest city in Thailand it is a must to stop at the old quarry lake. There is no better feeling than the one you get when swimming at Huay Teung Thao Lake. This picture-perfect lake is situated around 12 kilometers of the city center at the base of Doi Suthep mountain. This is the perfect spot to take a refreshing swim or have a swing in a hammock. If your stomach is growling of hunger, there are also restaurants nearby which have the most delicious food. I enjoy ordering my food as a takeaway and eat at a stilted hut on the water in the shade. As you drive about thirty-minutes south-west of the old city, the view becomes a little less attractive. However, you can still admire the quarry which has quite a striking body of water with steep quarried sides. This is one of my favorite spots to take ...
