Nezha at Beung Kaen Nakhon, Khon Kaen, Isaan, Thailand

on Sunday 09.10.11 the Chinese community dedicated the new Nezha statue at the Beung. There is going to be another event on the 15th which I will try to get more information about. Here is an exerpt from wikipedia or click to read the whole article, which seems to match other things I have read.

Appearances in ancient Chinese mythology and literature

Nezha has frequently appeared in Chinese mythology and ancient Chinese literature such as Fengshen Yanyi (or Investiture of the Gods), although the story of Nezha conquering the sea is the most well known among Chinese households.
In Journey to the West, Nezha was a general under his father, "Pagoda-wielding Heavenly King" Li Jing. He fought the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, when the latter rebelled against the Jade Emperor. They became friends later.[3] Nezha made some appearances in the novel to help the four protagonists defeat powerful demons.
