Spirit Houses


Spirit Houses can be found
throughout Asia, especially
in Burma, Cambodia, Laos
and Thailand.


Most houses and businesses
have a spirit house ~ most
placed in a corner of the property.


The house provides a shelter
for spirits that could cause
problems if not happy.


People make garlands of
flowers to be used as offerings.


We bought an offering and
placed it at the spirit house
at our hotel at the request
of Uncle Jamie who isn't
on this trip with us but
he is in spirit.


I loved this cat who sought
shelter from the rain in
the Spirit House.
