Initially people did not like the idea of using beer bottles , but as they are eco friendly, the authorities started using discarded bottles to decorate the shelters of monks and slowly they started using bottles to decorate the temple area also . this was appreciated and people started donating empty bottles whenever they visit the temple , here is a video showing the same.

this is thought provoking, see what was called sin has transformed into something else. world surrenders slowly.. it is we the people who brings the change. this temple is recognized as one among the eco friendly Site seeing spots in South east Asia.
Recycling is a good thought, we need to think if we can also reuse beer bottles, perfume bottles, cosmetics etc to make our earth environment friendly. this has motivated me ..
