Photographer's Note

Kids on their school day out at Buddha Park.
The park was started in 1958 by Luang Pu (Venerable Grandfather) Bunleua Sulilat.[2] Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat was a priest-shaman who integrated Hinduism and Buddhism.[2] His unique perspective was influenced by a Hindu rishi under whom he studied in Vietnam. After the revolution in 1975, anxious about the repercussions of the rule of Pathet Lao, he fled from Laos to Thailand where he built another sculpture park, Sala Keo ku in Nong Khai. Both parks are located right next to the Thai-Lao border (Mekong river), only a few kilometres apart from each other, and the tallest structures of the Buddha Park can actually be seen from the Thai side of Mekong.
