The Thais pray at these Shrines which are everywhere. They also ‘wai’ them as they walk past. To wai is to hold the hands together in front of the face, a mark of respect and a greeting. Younger people should initiate the wai as a mark of respect for their elders. Although I am not Thai, I often wai to say thankyou when someone has helped me or made me feel that they needed my respect.
