Are There Pyramids in Thailand
Too funny. I was in stitches reading this for some twisted reason. No forgiveness here Andy.
As for the piles of rocks contest...
Giza pyramid in Egypt 138.8m.
Tikal temple 4 in Guate 70m.
Templo Major in Mexico was 60m.
Golden mount in Bangkok 63.6m.
There are pyramids all over the world, even some under the ocean off the Japanese coast, I think.
Of particular curiosity are these piles of rocks in China...
White Pyramid of Xian
I believe you have probably seen Swayambhunath on the edge of Kathmandu city. Again, a big gold thing on top of a mound.
This is typical of Buddhist stupa design in south asia. A big mound with a thing on top.
Many religions use tall things in this way... churches have a steeple, Hindu temples also have a sort of pyramid-tower part, the Muslims have minarets, the ancient Celts used standing stones, Babylon had the Ziggurats and mountains are always seen as holy places in early cultures...
OK, this is 2 weird. After harold & kumar's Burgers post and ash's Church steeple note, I can only comment on a highly recommended acoustic music offering by the Waybacks, "Burger After Church":
Ash is maybe also feeling and not just making labels. The
He is pointing at height, and so am I. Whether a person used big rock blocks or huge mounds of dirt. There is a need for height when we honor importance.
Eric --The Fabulous 1,000-Foot White Pyramid of Xian is height in a way.
