DAILY PHOTO: Scenes from Spirit City

Taken in January of 2019 near Vientiane at the Buddha Park (Xieng Khuan)

Xieng Khuan (which translates to “Spirit City”) is what this statue park outside Vientiane, Laos is apparently called by locals. In English, it’s usually listed as “Buddha Park.” I used the former translation because it’s way more intriguing, but if you’re looking to find the place…

It should also be pointed out that some of the artwork is Hindu in origin, rather than Buddhist.
