You can see the big sculptures from far away place. There is entrance fee tourists but it is worth for me. There are a lot of cement sculptures which are related to the Lord Buddha story. Although those sculptures are not so beautiful or in correct shape but I can feel something special on them.

Exceeded all my expectations. Packed with intricate and sometimes towering sculptures of Asian mystics, deities and whatnot.

I'm a total chicken to this type of image. But it was worth it, 100 bath each from the bus station n back with a tuktuk. If u don't read thai u should read on this place before. But it was cool! Amazing how everything is still in a good shape n gigantic size

This whimsical spot, with its many Buddha sculptures, can be reached from central Nong Khai in 20-30 minutes cycling.
