Ganesh in Thailand

Although Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist nation, statues and shrines to Hindu deities are a common sight in the kingdom. Thai Buddhists routinely pay their respects to these Hindu figures although these deities usually have a different name in Thai compared to Hinduism. One of the most widely seen and easily recognisable is Ganesh (Ganesha), the elephant-headed god usually referred to in Thai as Phra Phikanet..
