You Have No Clue How This Amazing Temple Was Created

How far your imagination can reach when it comes to recycling any empties? 

Built with a million of beer bottles, this temple in the north-east of Thailand is one of the hidden wonders on the earth. When you think about the things associated with the monks, undoubtedly beer will not be there in your list. But, these Buddhist priests in Thailand collected 1.5 million of beer bottles to make a temple called Wat Pa Maha Kaew Temple—nicknamed Temple of a Million Bottles. 

"More bottles we get, more temples we make," says Abbot San Kataboonyo, the monk who with other religious men intended to create more of such magnificent buildings by recycling the beer bottles.
