MAHATUC PAGODA - VIỆT NAM


Chùa Dơi , also called Mả Tóc Pagoda ( Watt ‘Maha Tup’ in Kh’mer, but better known as the ‘Bat’ Pagoda), Soc Trang is the Khmer Pagoda and was built during the 16th century, but has been renovated several times . It’s notable for its architecture, an ancient Buddha statue and a number of Buddhist books written on palm leaves, but its main claim to fame is the presence of large numbers of bats. Interestingly, the presence of the bats has not affected the plants growing in and around the pagoda and they seem oblivious to the people wandering around below them.
