People that live in glass... um temples, shouldn't throw stones

Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew, literally Wilderness Temple of the Great Glass Pagoda), also known as the Temple of a Million Bottles, is a Buddhist temple in Khun Han district of Sisaket province, Thailand.

The temple is made of over 1.5 million empty Heineken bottles and Chang beer bottles. Collection of the bottles began in 1984; it took two years to build the main temple.

Thereafter, the monks continued to expand the site, and by 2009 some 20 buildings had been similarly constructed.
