Well worth a visit. Beautiful statues adorn this place. It is not too big either so an hour or two and you will have seen everything.

This is a lovely place to visit for half day or more. Unfortunately, there is no translation in English, nothing whatsoever available. We had some info from the Internet and that's it. Do your research before going to understand better the sculptures.

It was really interesting to walk through this big park and see all sculptures. Luckily I had thai support and got very good information on each sculpture.

This park was about buddhism religion and located far from the center of Nongkhai you can go to this place by motorcycle or van at the bus station around 40 baht but choose motorcycle was better when you back to city.

Bit quirky and rundown. It is really only a large park (very hot in the day time sun) with large statutes and quite ugly creatures depicting folklore and various idols

Just a few km outside of Nong Khai, don't miss a visit to this interesting place! Big sculptures made of concrete, that time has left its marks on them. Interesting fusion of eastern religious art with western-style clothing and concepts. A visionary artist, that died in 1996 but left behind others to follow his teachings and keep his legacy alive.... More
