Ghost of Thailand

TAKHIANRAN-THAILAND-April 2010.The village of Takhianran (in Thailand near the Cambodian border province of Sissaket) is haunted by a ghost from the unexplained death of a young girl and makes people sick.
Buddhism is the main religion of Thailand yet superstitions and belief in ghosts are deeply rooted there. Impossible to escape their influence in this country—they are present absolutely everywhere. The spirits, called “Pi”, are lost souls which have not been able to be reincarnated and so continue to haunt and torment the living.
All the inhabitants have built scarecrow to prevent the ghost from coming into their homes.(photo by Patrick Aventurier)
