When the abbot of Wat Phayap learned that blasting for a quarry in Saraburi Province was destroying a beautiful cave, he rescued pieces of it and plastered the stalactites, stalagmites and other incredible rocks all over a room below his residence, creating a shrine like no other.

It looks like the products of the quarry have been put to good use, too. The temple was putting the finishing touches to a beautiful new bóht when we visited, made of polished granite and marble, with a marble-tiled roof.
