"Giant Swing" Wat Suthat - Sao Ching Cha Tip by Joenes
Wat Suthat - Sao Ching Cha, Bangkok: 26 reviews and 46 photos
A bright-red wooden structure that was once the focus of Brahman ceremonies in honor of the Hindu god Shiva. At one time, courageous fellows would attempt to grab a pouch of money from a 25-meter stake by swinging higher and higher until they were able to reach it with their teeth. Accidents and deaths were so common that this practice was outlawed in the 1930s.
