Thailand - Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine.

A shrine? That means my wife wants to see it.

And it is... well, I'll let someone else describe it.

Bangkok's Penis Shrine, aka Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine:
"The Penis Shrine, otherwise known by its real name the Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine, is hidden away in Nai Lert Park next to the hotel of the same name, the Nai Lert Park Hotel (used to be the Hilton Hotel). The shrine was originally dedicated to Chao Tuptim, a female animist spirit who people believe has been residing in the banyan tree next to the shrine for hundreds of years."




Now that's just intimidating.

And it puts our local penis shrine to shame, it does.
