Korat Again: Monk's Memorial Temple

Someone, and actor I think, had a dream that told him to create a big temple dedicated to a famous monk in Korat, Thailand. This is what he came up with.

I'm pretty sure the monk would be mortified to see what has been done in his name. Notice the money trees hanging near his giant golden statue. Money is the name of the game here.

I wondered what those people were praying for. I would hope for the best, but it was probably good luck in the lottery.
