Mummified Monk, Ko Samui, Thailand

Preserved Bodies Around the World, Excerpt
One man's "remarkably well preserved" is another man's creepy corpse. On Ko Samui, at Wat Khunaram, a venerated monk who died more than 30 years ago sits in his saffron robes. His flesh is grey and crumbling and he wears a pair of sunglasses to hide his hollow eyes. Nearby you can walk to the waterfall at Na Muang and watch as the monkeys climb for coconuts.
