Idle Idol: Smoking Pipe-Shaped Museum Built in Southeast China

This weird-looking structure was built in Fujian Province in memory of popular writer and philosopher Lin Yutang, who lived nearby, and was renowned for smoking a pipe.

It’s believed to be the world’s largest such building at 24 yards high, and 74 yards wide, and could earn a place in the Guinness Book of Records, according to China News.
