The Legend of the Kinaree
The Kinaree (กินรี) is a mythical being with the upper body of a woman and the body, tail and legs of a swan. They are believed to be the secret keepers of Thailand and it’s Dharma.
The most famous Kinaree in Thai mythology is the figure known as Manora, a heroine in the tale Sudhana Jataka. The story inspired a dance called Manorah Buchayan, which is one of the most profound among the high classical dances of Thailand, as well as the “Norah” dance of southern Thailand.
