Temple of bottles


This amazing buddhist temple was built by Thai monks using discarded glass bottles –

Fifty years ago the Heineken Beer company looked at reshaping its beer bottle to be useful as a building block. It never happened, so 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.

    reminds me that people who lives in glass houses ( or temples in this case ) should not throw stones.
