From Wat Phra Singh (วัดพระสิงห์วรมหาวิหาร), Chiangmai
The main stupa itself is imposing for its size but lacking in decoration and the open-air shrine behind the stupa is a popular spot for local worshippers. The odd pulley contraption is to allow adherents — or anyone willing to pay the 20 baht — to gain merit by pouring water over the normally out of reach chedi.
