Sala Kaew Ku

Home - Travel stories - Nong Khai - Sala Kaew Ku

During the day-trips we have visited some temples. One of these, Sala Kaew Ku, sometimes named Wat Khaek, is very special. Maybe for Thai people it is not a real temple. Sala Kaew Ku is founded in 1978, by someone, who united Buddhist and Brahman ideas. If you read more than one travel guide, or if you talk with some people, everybody tells a different story about the founder.
Sala Kaew Ku is strange, very strange. You often see gigantic statues in Thailand, but here they are different, a very different style. A litte threatening, unreal, not beautiful, but still …. Maybe it looks a bit like the paintings of Jeroen Bosch.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
