Visiting the Samakki Tham Religious Centre in Nakhon Thai

The Samakki Tham Religious Centre in Nakhon Thai, Thailand

The first time passing the meditation temple I thought "What the heck is that?" and I made a quick stop for some photos. Later I returned and took some more time to talk to the people building this. It is really amazing! This is why I love travelling in Thailand ... you find such a special and sometimes weird things along your journey. For building they used cement (no sand or stones) mixed with foam. And it is amazing but this little houses do not have airco and are still cool inside ... while outside 34 Celsius. Also the main building is going to be (is) something special. With a library in the basement and a meditation room in top (heaven) while the ground floor will be lighted by a sky of LED lights in bamboo.
