Buddha Park Sala Keoku - a game of imagination

Sala Keoku is a fantastic Buddha park located near the city. Nong Khai. Another similar park created by the same architect (Bunlya Zulilat) is located in Laos, across the Mekong River.

On the Internet, they write that the park Sala Keoku was onaccount second, and was supposedly made, just before its creator went crazy. I am not sure that this is the case, because, although all the sculptures are unusual for traditional Buddhism, they are clearly not similar to some surrealism of the same Salvador Dali, who definitely had no head.

To be honest, they expected more, thought that therecompletely imagination broke out from man. However, it is worth a look, much more interesting than a typical typical Thai temple. And the blessing to get is very simple, just only 3-4 km from the city center. We went on bicycles in general, the road took 20 minutes. The cost of visiting foreigners is 20 baht (20 rubles), very godly, isn't it?

We understood only the meaning of one of the compositions. We called it the circle of life - the figures placed in a circle, most likely, mean the cycle of human life. I will explain:
1. Once upon a time there were two heterosexual Thai pioneers, but of European appearance
2. Reached sexual age
3. Altar, end of bachelor life
4. Was born a careless daughter
5. An old man with an old woman at a broken trough, live only by donation box
6. The end, the sarcophagus

Be sure to take children or someone with you.distantly resembling them (for example, wife). Indeed, in the center of the park Sala Keoku there is a pond in which catfish and carps are bred. And, accordingly, you can feed them for 10 baht, and get a lot of puppy delight. By the way, if you feed the fish not from the pier, but from the shore, then you have a chance to stroke it. It feels like a white mushroom hat.
