Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine (Penis Shrine)

Local nameศาลเจ้าแม่ทับทิ
LocationPathum Wan District, Bangkok, Thailand

Created by Thai businessman Nai Lert at the beginning of the 20th century, this site is one of the greatest examples of intentional phallic architecture in the world.

As the name suggests, the shrine contains more than a 100 of colorfully painted penis statues of all shapes and sizes - some are the size of a canoe. This "penis forest" is especially popular with young women because the statues are said to bring you good fortune and fertility if you come into contact with them.
