Yaksha or Yuk - Temple Guardians

I have posted previously about the Temple Guardians that are at many temples in Phuket for example Wat Srisoonthorn.

What I didn't know was that they all had names! When we last travelled to Australia from Bangkok Airport I took a photo of each one to see if they matched any of the ones which I had seen here in Phuket.

They were not always there but that is another story.
