Glass Bottle Temple Melaka is a small Thai Buddhist temple tucked away down a side street in a residential area of Melaka, close to the Heng Ann Association Building.
The main altar is flanked with pillars and steps decorated with glass bottles to achieve a pleasing effect.
As the name suggests the temple incorporates hundreds of recycled green glass bottles in its design and decor.
This is the second glass bottle temple in Malaysia, the other being Wat Charok Padang near Sik in Kedah.
Both temples are inspired by the more famous glass bottle temple in Thailand called Wat Pa Haha Chedi Kaew.
