Buddhist Temple Abandoned By Entire Order Of Horny Monks

Apparently eternity in nirvana can’t hold a candle to some sweet Thai poontang…

Abandoned Buddhist TempleA once-popular Buddhist temple in Nakhon Sawan has been left abandoned and overgrown for almost a year after its former abbot and monks left to start families.

Wat Khao Phranikorn Pathumrak, located in the mountainous Khao Phra area tambon Nongklab in Nong Bua district, has taken on a far-different look than it did before Buddhist Lent last spring. The temple hall and worship sites now are covered with grass and shrubs. Old saffron robes and the monks’ belongings are scattered around the temple grounds…

In the past, Wat Khao Phranikorn Pathumrak drew many Buddhists to make merit and feed monkeys, which numbered at least 1,000.  After the temple was abandoned, the number of merit-makers dropped and most the monkeys left for other areas… [sic]  [Bangkok Post]
