Presentation

Literally Thai Temple of Million Bottles, it is one of the curiosities of Si Saket Province. It is also known as Wat Phra Maha Chedi Kaew, its real name but everyone uses its nickname. Its construction was initiated in 1984 by a monk who had the idea to collect empty bottles and cover the surface of all the buildings of the temple with them. A green and economical initiative. Some murals are made with capsules.
This decoration method is used from the main building, Sala Thansmoson Maha Chedi Kaew built in the middle of a small pond, to the houses of monks and even toilets are made with cement and bottles (there are now new modern toilettes with no bottles) and a reclining Buddha. Contrary to what you might think or read sometimes, the bottles used are not only Heinekken bottles, there are all kinds of bottles. You can recognize brands such as Pepsi, Singha, Chang, M-100... So far more than one and a half million bottles have been used to build the entire temple. The Temple of Million Bottles is located in Khun Han about 50 kilometers from Si Saket and 25 km from Kantharalak.

Practical information about Wat Lan Khuat

No admission fee
From Si Saket Bus Terminal, bus number 4189 goes at least every hour to Khun Han (40 baht - 1h30). From Kantharalak, it is more complicated if songhtaew 4301 (20 baht) goes to Khun Han, it is quite rare. I waited over one hour and a half at the bus terminal without seeing a single one. It is better to have a vehicule or to take a taxi or motorcycle taxi. From Kantharalak the motorcycle taxi trip with the driver waiting for you when you visit the temple will cost around 450 THB.
