Xieng Khuan Buddha Park, Laos

From series “Top 16 Most Unusual and Original Parks and Gardens”
Year: 1958.

In Laos, travelers will have an opportunity to visit  the unusual Buddha Park. It is located in the immediate vicinity of Vientiane. The opening of the park took place about 50 years ago. It is not about nice exotic plants, but uncommon sculptures instead. Total in the park, there are about 200 statues of Buddhist and Hindu subjects, among which you can see not only the Buddha sculptures, but also incredible mythical monsters.

Xieng Khuan Buddha Park, Laos The park was opened in 1958, but apparently some statues look as if they have been created a few hundred years ago. In fact, concrete items were aged artificially to give the park complex a special kind of mystery. Besides sculptures, there are amazing landscape decorations. The park is very popular among tourists. It’s not difficult to get there from the capital of Laos, so the facility is not empty any day of the year.

The founder of the park is Bounleua Suliat, one of the locals and supporter of special religious movement, which is a combination of Hinduism and Buddhism. Bounleua Suliat invested a lot of personal resources in creating the facility. Many sculptures was built on donations. An admission fee for entering is about 1 US dollar. For this modest money, guests have an opportunity not only to walk in the park, but to make memorable pictures completely free. Tourists who want to visit the Buddha Park by themselves have to get to the bus station Talat Sao, which is located near the central market of the capital. From there, buses to the park go regularly.
