The sometimes grotesque statues are well worth a visit. Same price for foreigners and locals - 20 baht. Umbrella hire 10 baht. V hot when we visited. The statues appear ancient bit are only 20 or 30 years old. Interesting museum with gongs to strike.

An amazing testament of human ability, from what I understand the man who created this converted from Buddhism to Hinduism, so you can see creations unique to both. the massive statue of Narc is a real sight to see

This place is an unusual attraction. It's cheap to get in, doesn't have dual pricing for foreigners which is good and you can take good photos.

I first visited Sala Kaew Ku over 30 years ago when this place was in its very early stages of creation. It is good to see that work has continued and the place has been maintained well after the death of its founder Luang Pu...More

Close to Nong Khai downtown, and only 20 baht entry fee for tourists & locals. Definitely worth a trip to view and bang the amazing resonating gong (cymbal). Better to read up on the history of the structures before attending to absorb the atmosphere (unless...More
