Temple Made of Bottles






arty shot through 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. It puts every other bottle building we have shown to shame.


Once again, proving Alex Steffen's point that there is no such thing as garbage, just useful stuff in the wrong place. Thanks to Greenupgrader

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