    There is no beer in Nirvana ...

    Buddhist monks in Thailand, have been building a temple complex from empty beer bottles.  Known as Wat Lan Kuad or 'the Temple of a Million Bottles', located in Sisaket province near the Cambodian border.  Of course alcohol, for lay and monastics, was strongly discouraged by the Buddha, so I don't know if this is exactly "kosher".

    The overall effect is beautiful and yet kitschy at the same time.  You can see more photos here and read more about it here.
