    One of the most famous Buddha heads in the world is Buddha Head in Tree Roots, Wat Mahathat, Ayutthaya🎍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is still no exact history of how the Buddha head became entwined in the roots of the tree🌳🌳🌳 Among many theories, one theory suggests that the tree grew around the head of the Buddha when the temple was left abandoned. Similarly, another theory also states that a thief moved the Buddha head away from the main temple in Ayutthaya to hide it. But after moving the stone Buddha head away from the ruined main temple, it is believed that the thief could not move the head beyond the walls surrounding the temple. Instead of that, the stone Buddha head was left by the wall where it got nestled in the tree roots which have grown and entwined around it😮Amazing, isn’t? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
