Pak Ou Caves

Pak Ou Caves
Pak Ou Caves, 25 km up the Mekong River from Luang Prabang, house some 4,000 or so statues of Buddha ranging from gold statues to large wooden versions. The lower cave, Tham Ting, contains approximately 2,500 Buddhas while the upper cave, Tham Theung, contains aproximately 1,500 Buddhas. The Buddhas have been brought to the caves over centuries by locals and visitors.

Des avantages de voyages, c'est que l'on fixe ses souvenirs pour ensuite les donner en partage... Bel exemple de générosité, ce bateau sur le Mékong...
