Temple Of Bottles

Temple of bottles, originally uploaded by cschildt.

Buddhist monks in Thailand built a temple out of beer bottles.

Buddhist monks from Thailand's Sisaket province took matters into their own hands and collected a million bottles to build the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple. It puts every other bottle building we have shown to shame.

Even the washrooms and the crematorium are built of bottles, a mix of green Heineken and brown local Chang beer.

Amazing more pictures at the link and below. Also, Heineken at one point made beer bottles to be used as building blocks. That is pretty cool. I bet if one of the west coast micro breweries were to do that it would take off in the progressive slash hippie community.
