Adjacent to Wat Mahathat is Bangkok's biggest amulet market, where a fantastic array of religious amulets, charms, talismans and traditional medicine is sold..Here hundreds buyers and sellers squat on the ground, studying tiny images of the Buddha with magnifying glasses, hoping to find one that will bring good fortune or ward off evil. Each type of amulet brings a specific kind of luck: to get the girl, to pass your exams, to keep bugs out of your rice stock, or to ward off diseases or even your mother-in-law.
