Como - Rockery and Twisted Hermit
Complete medical education
Khao Mor is a typical rocky courtyard in the mountains, decorated with plants, pagodas, Chinese lampposts, Chinese dolls and various quadruped animals. King Rama III ordered the transport of the large and small rocks of the Grand Palace in Bangkok to this reassembly. Each rockery is named after the main plant species or important handicrafts. Examples include Baoguan Mountain, Zhangzi Mountain, India's Kuka Mountain, Xiandanhua Mountain, Nim Tree Mountain, Bodhi Mountain, Twisted Hermitage Mountain and Shivalingen Mountain. Herbs and local plants are listed as rockeries so that people can learn and understand their medicinal properties.
The twisted hermitage was deliberately created as a collection of traditional medicine and knowledge in the era of the Great Wall Dynasty. King Rama III combined the stretching movement with the belief that the hermit is a teacher in Thailand, creating a figurine that twists the hermit. These figurines, originally made of clay, were later cast from zinc-tin alloy and have remained so far. There were 80 hidden hermits in the original exhibition, and there are only 24 hidden. The Twisted Hermit Statue depicts Indian yoga poses that help maintain health, vitality and reduce stress and burden. These postures can be used to cure minor illnesses, and if used in combination with herbs, the healing effect is better.
