Ancient Siam

The Ancient City in Samut Prakan (Muang Boran)

Based on Hinduism mythology, once when deities became less powerful and were threatened by mightier ogres, they asked for help from God Vishnu or Narai. The god recommended they hold a ceremony, known as the “Churning of the Ocean”. to make a magic potion from the ocean water.

The potion was believed to bring the deities back their mighty power and eternal life. However, the deities could not carry out the great ritual on their own. So, they asked for help from the ogres.

Finally, the ogres missed the chance to drink the holy water and could not threaten the deities anymore because from then on the deities get back their mighty power and became much more powerful than the ogres.
