One of Songkran Devi (Angel) is called “Montha Devi” , who is the daughter of Kabinla Prom. Legend said that Kabinla Prom lost his gamble and promised to cut of his head as a prize. However his head cannot be placed anywhere because if his head were placed in mid-air, there would be no rain. If placed on land, there would get on fire or if dumped in the ocean, we would be water on Earth so he asked his 7 daughter to carry this head around Mount Phra Sumain (Each Devi represents day of the week). Year 2015, the one on duty is called “Raksot Devi”
Montha Devi is the Songkran Devi for Wednesday who wears Champa flower behind her ear. In addition she holds a stylus and a staff. She drinks milk and eats butter. A donkey is her vehicle.
