Buddha Park is a sculpture park located 25 km southeast from Vientiane, Laos in a meadow by the Mekong River. The Xieng Khuan park was built in 1958 by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat. He was a priest-shaman, myth-maker, mystic and sculpture artist with a large following in Laos and later in Thailand. There are more than 200 sculptures in the park and most of them face away from the Mekong. The statues are made of cement and are ornate, and sometimes bizarre in design. The statues appear to be centuries old, though they are not.

The Wailing Wall aka Kotel in Old City of Jerusalem

Share/Bookmark

The Wailing wall aka the Kotel became the main prayer place only about 700 years ago, when the Ramban arrived to Jerusalem, and started resurrecting the Jewish settlement there. The area west of the Temple Mount was deserted, so Jews settled there. The Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem has figured prominently in the Jewish consciousness for centuries. Generations dreamed of appearing before the old stone wall Nowadays, the Wall is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the cracks between the rectangular stones are crammed with paper. Over a million people visit each year.
