In late April, I posted some Burmese images of the Buddhist saint/spirit Upakhut. During my recent visit to Sipsonpanna I was delighted to see this lively representation of Upakhut at the Manting Temple in Jinghong. Talking briefly with one of the monks there it was evident that local beliefs about Upakhut (particularly his protective role at major festivals) are similiar to those found in northern Thailand. I would be very interested to hear of any other sightings of Upakhut in the southeast Asian region (or elsewhere!).
