Laos Sights

Xieng Khuan Buddha Park

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

The bizarre creation of an ecumenical monk, Luang Pa Bunleua Sulilat, who dreamed of a world religion embracing all faiths, this park is "peopled" by enormous Buddhist and Hindu sculptures spread across an attractive landscape of trees, shrubs, and flower gardens. Keep an eye out for the remarkable 165-foot-long sleeping Buddha. The park was laid out by the monk's followers in 1958 on the banks of the Mekong, opposite the Thai town of Nong Khai. Get there by taking public

bus #14 from the Talat Sao bus station.
