Temple With Bizarre Mechanical Skeleton In Coffin
This bizarre Buddhist temple features monks on a rotating stand and a mechanical skeleton that rises from a coffin. The Wat Mahabut temple in Bangkok, Thailand, has gained a reputation for its quirky displays which are used to encourage followers to give donations. There's also a turntable with gold Buddha figures with metal bowls in front of them for worshippers to drop coins inside. The filmer said: ''It was like a Buddhist fairground. I was a little bit freaked out when the skeleton started sitting up from the coffin. He seemed to be smiling. I found the temple very strange but also visually very interesting.''
