Bangkok is a city which is rich with contrasts, juxtapositions as well as contradictions. This can be considered as a breeding ground with a fertility which consists of strangely beautiful places which makes you stop and reach for your camera to take a shot. Here I will tell you about those kind of places which are unusual sights that you must visit.

Phallic shrine is one such place. At the Goddess Tubtim shrine, there are hundreds of phalluses which are oversized and they can be called as erect proof that tells you even the spirit world is also really matters. This place was found in grounds of Swissotel Nai Lert hotel where people are flocking here to find for fertility.

The first and last place you must definitely visit is the Samut Prakan’s  Erwan Museum which is a large place with a three headed elephant statue. It is a splendid and towering beast which has a weight of 250 tons. It has a height of 29 meters and a length of 39 meters.

Forensic Museum is also an unusual place which you must visit in Bangkok. It contains of corpses of mass murdering cannibals and glass jars which contain deformed babies and also autopsy photographs which are preserved for posterity. Remember! This place is not for the faint-hearted.

Wat Pariwat which is nicknamed as the David Beckham Temple has an unusual reason for this name. In this huge altar, it has an anonymous looking temple, a Garuda in its back corner, one of the mythic winged creatures, was been replaced by David Beckham! This statuette is of a height of 30 cm only and the haircut in the carving is not the one we usually know.

The human body museum is also a great place which you must visit. This is located in Siam square. It has an amazing exhibition of fourteen dissected human bodies from Japan. Some people may think this is really a creepy place or little disturbing. But this can be called as an educational exhibit as this is located in the faculty of dentistry building in the Chulalongkorn University.
