This Buddha Park can be reached by bus to save money as it is 25 Km away from Vientiane center. It was built about 60 years ago, having about 200 statues of Hindu and Buddhist believes. I feel the area is more like a park than a religious site. The park is located by the Mekong River and not far from Thai-Laos border gate. We walked inside to take photos in about an hour as the park is not large. We saw statues of Gods, human beings, animals and devils. They say the tallest part of this park can be seen from Thailand side. We went up the huge pumpkin having 3 levels representing hell, earth and heaven and there are statues inside too. The reclining Buddha statue is long about 40 meters and you can’t miss that. We visited around 2pm and it was so hot. Coconut juice, mango juice and other beverages are sold in the park. Price is about 25,000 Kip. The park entrance ticket doesn’t cost much (about the same price with a soft drink). The park has trees and plants which are pleasant to walk inside. Bring your water bottles.
Before going to Vientiane, I didn't find the Buddha Park online. Maybe I was careless. I didn't plan to visit the Buddha Statue Park either. Coincidentally, I came out of the park by the Mekong River that day. A Doodle driver was waiting for visitors there. I wanted to go to the National Museum. Then he showed me the picture of the Buddha Statue Park. Then, the fare tag was 200,000 Laos dollars. The package came and went. After arriving, the driver waited outside for me for an hour to swim. After that, he took me back to the original place. I haggled 100,000 yuan, he said, what about the gas fare? What about? Say 120,000, and the deal is concluded. I don't know how far the Buddha Statue Park is from Vientiane, but the driver drove for at least an hour before he arrived. Some sections of the road were under construction, so the shoes were black when he went and white when he came back. After surfing the internet, I saw some people go to the Buddha Statue Park by bus No. 14 for only 6,000 Laos dollars. Although my price is a little higher, but after all, it's a special bus. If more people go by car, the share will be cheaper. Who calls me a solo tour? There are many Buddha statues in the Buddha Statue Park. There should be many stories, but I haven't seen any introduction. These statues have been for a long time. Some of them are old. The sculpture art of these statues and the imagination of the sculptor are very rich. In front of the largest statues, there are incense burners, cartridges and paper signatures. Some Laotians ask for signatures, and I follow them. Then I ask the Laotians to translate them into English for you. The Buddha Statue Park is worth seeing, but the traffic from there to Vientiane is not very good. Now the road is under construction, I believe it will be much better in the future. Tickets are 4000 Laos dollars.
Imagine everything is not big, and in a short time, I came to the Buddha Statue Park by the Mekong River, which is the Buddha Statue Sculpture Park. The ancient park was built in 1985 and inspired by a creative monk. The most distinctive statues in the park are the "Big Pumpkin" sculpture and the giant half-lying Buddha statue. The park is also a few big basketball courts, the statues are very dense, the size of statues are scattered. Once inside the park gate is the "Big Pumpkin" sculpture, which is divided into three layers called heaven, earth and hell. Inside, there are upright ladders to climb the trapezoidal roof terrace. The first opportunity to push the roof is also an experience. The roof is very steep, bold enough to walk around the roof. I sat on it and saw the landscape of the whole garden. When you go downstairs, you can see the heaven, earth and hell inside "Big Pumpkin" from every window. There are different clay sculptures in the three-storey building with "Big Pumpkin" core reflecting the heaven, the world and hell. When you visit from the Hell window, a black arm stretches out to frighten me. It is also a clay sculpture. Seeing monks in orange costumes come to visit the garden, the country's religious belief is Hinayana Buddhism.
Also known as Xiangkun Temple, located in the suburbs of Vientiane City, there are nearly 100 Buddha statues. On the right hand side of the park stands the Tower of Heaven and Hell, which symbolizes the cycle of life. On the left is a large sleeping Buddha, more than 40 meters in length. Buddha statues of different shapes are scattered around the park, which is very spectacular. It's a scenic spot you can't miss!
In the suburb of Vientiane, the capital of Vientiane, Laos, there is a unique park, the Buddhist Statue Park, which was donated by devout Buddhists and Impressionists in 1958. It covers an area of 60,000 square meters and contains hundreds of Buddhist and Hindu statues.
