‘The caves of Pak Ou’


On my previous picture I showed the small beach at the other side of the Mekong (more precisely on the Nam Ou just before its mouth in the Mekong).

It were the high cliffs of the karst mountains perpendicular to the river that impressed me.
Two caves in the cliffs on the west side of the Mekong are much visited by tourists.

These caves are famous for their miniature Buddha sculptures.
According to Wikipedia there are hundreds of very small and mostly damaged wooden Buddhist figures that can be seen on the different wall shelves. The little statues have many different positions, including meditation, teaching, peace, rain, and reclining.
It was very crowded in the caves with little room to take a decent picture.
See 1st picture of the 3 in the WS.
