Buddha Park

Vientiane, Laos

Buddha Park (aka XiengKhuan) is a famous sculpture park with more than 200 religious statues including a huge 40-metre high reclining Buddha image. The best spot for photography here is on top of the giant pumpkin structure standing about three stories high. The entrance is crafted to look like a demon’s mouth (about three metres high) with a stone ladder inside leading to a bird's eye view of the entire XiengKuan Park.It was built in 1958 by Luang Pu BunleuaSulilat, a monk who studied both Buddhism and Hinduism.
