Which day you were born?

I went to Wat Chalong during my stay in Phuket.

I didn't know the history of this temple. Just felt that it is so nice and so glory.
It's actually a temple to commemorate a monk who has help to protect Phuket in the 1800an.

The temple has many Buddha statues. Some are lying down, some are sitting with different positions, some are standing.


My Thai friend told me that different position represent different form of the Buddha who protect the human being who born on different day.
For example, those who are born on Thursday, will be protected by the one lying down. Those who are born on Monday, will be protected by the Buddha which is sitting right up....
I forgot which position is for which day.

I only know that I'm protected by this form:

Because I was born on Saturday
:)

Do you know which day you were born?
