Sawasdee and welcome to our Thai Temple Rubbing Web site.
For several years now, we have been selling these Temple Rubbings at our Web store – The Asian Art Store. They have by far been our hottest selling item there, so we have decided to create this independent site devoted only to Thai Temple Rubbings. To further stimulate interest in these works of art, we have prepared a set of articles to better explain just what these rubbings are, how they are created, where they were originally rubbed, and a bit of the history behind the rubbings.
You can find our articles for Thai Temple Rubbings in the top menu under Articles. We would also like to extend an invitation for any information you may have or have found about these Temple Rubbings that have been done in Thailand. If you have written an article, or would like to create an article for publication, please contact us and let us know what you have or would like to write.
We also have an eStore here which will be the primary point of sale for these rubbings.

New Store Look
We’ve given a new simpler look to our store. Following our most recent buying trip to Thailand, we’ve added a few “maroon” colored rubbings. We had to go directly to the source for these and have them specially made just for our store. If we see a growing demand for the maroon temple rubbings, we may add some more varieties when we do our next trip sometime in 2014. To check out our new/simple store; Visit Our Store Now!
