A mural at 700-year-old Wat Sampa Siw in Muang district of Suphan Buri has been attracting crowds recently. It is probably the only temple in Thailand where you can see the popular Doraemon cartoon character appearing in scenes of the Lord Buddha's past lives and the afterlife. More here
What does Doraemon see in the inferno? Or in Heaven?
Certainly not Nobi Nobita, nor Minamoto Sizuka, but stories of Buddhas.
And of course, this painting doesn’t have a history as long as the 700-year-old temple. More here
Thank you so much for the article/pictures/video...as for me I love cartoons .... in the murals ...fine with me..just like SUPERMAN picture(look like Brandon Routh the new superman) at the White Temple in Thailand.
Someday in the future we might see Micky Mouse/Disney characters in the murals too....why not??
