Buddha Street Bangkok

A video featuring a fascinating street in Bangkok where thousands of Buddha statues are made before being delivered to temples.

Bamrung Muang Road – or Buddha Street as it is nicknamed – has been churning out the religious idols since the early 1800s.

Today it is home to dozens of small factories and shops that continue to mass-produce the religious symbols before they are delivered to temples around the country.

Huge brass models line the pavements as they stand outside shops before being bought by customers or delivered.
