Beer bottle temple

They take reincarnation seriously at Wat Pra Maha Chedi Kaew(litery means temple of glass). Used beer bottles had been giving a new life over here in Thailand's Sisaket province, about 600 km (370 miles) northeast of Bangkok.

The monks began collecting the bottles 20 years ago with help from local authorities. People had sent them over millions bottles of Heineken and Chang(Thai beer). They now have built 20 buildings include temple, crematorium, prayer rooms, a hall, water tower, tourist bathrooms and several small bungalows.
