    » Ban Non Salao in Phu Khieo, Chaiyaphum province, is known for its unique tradition of hae nak hot (brutal ordination parade) in which each would-be novice has to stay seated on a severely rocking bamboo stretcher during the 3km-procession to Wat Ta Khaek, a local temple. This rodeo-style test is meant to prove one's determination to become a Buddhist monk. Those who make it to the temple without falling will get to undergo the ordination.
