17-Story Pink Dragon?! ...

 18th century rose quart dragon vase

The Samphran district of Thail holds one of the most unique Buddhist temples found in the country. The bright pink temple, called Wat Samphran, stands 17-stories high and is wrapped up in a scaly green dragon.
The design of the structure came to the founder of the temple during a 7-day fasting meditation and is built 80 meters tall to honor the number of years that Buddha lived.
Visitors can climb the great building and touch the dragon's beard or large talons from an access point on the roof. You can get a 306 perspective on the gigantic temple in the Great Big Story video below.

Be sure to check out all the other participants in this week's Beverly's Pink Saturday blog hop.

Then, go make something beautiful!

Not only a kindred biolio-spirit but a kindred Sondheim spirit too. We're headed to Canada in a couple of weeks to see the National Theatre Live production of Follies and I can't wait!

Loved this post -- you always introduce me to something new and fun! Happy weekend!
