    Unique Bottle Recycling-Building a Thai Temple from One Million Bottles [ Read More at © Homesthetics - Inspiring ideas for your home.]

  • Center for Southeast Asian Studies

    A rather unusual temple in Thailand is the “Wat Lan Khuat” in Khun Han, Isaan. In English the temple is called the “Million Bottle Temple” or the “Beer Bottle Temple.” This temple is not only interesting, it is a testament to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Thai monks that built it. #Temple #Thailand #Recycle For more information and a video: Photo credit:

    4. A house-cellar - What should you do with your empty beer and wine bottles? Obviously, build a house with it! The house that you see below, located in Thailand, is made out of 1.5 million empty beer bottles. Cheers!

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And if you are a Buddhist monk and life gives you empty beer bottles . . . build a temple out of them. That was the philosophy of a group of Thai monks in the early 1980s who looked at the innumerable glass beer bottles littering their eastern Thailand hometown of Khun Han and saw more than trash. They saw potential."
