Highway Pillars

The one that is gray and has a design on it is unique. Legend has it that as they built the highway, that’s the one spot they couldn’t get a pillar to go into…they tried and tried. Finally, they contacted a Buddhist monk, who informed them that they couldn’t put a pillar there because there was a dragon down there. If they drew a dragon motif on a pillar, then they would be able to put it in the ground. So they did, and they did.
