I’ve stayed for 3 days in Laos, tomorrow I will be back to Kuala-Lumpur in order to continue my journey and head to Cambodia.
Laos itself is way more interesting that it seems on the first glance, but I will only post some religous details of the country.
The first thing that I’ve noted even on the way from the airport are temples. There’re literary hundreds of temples, some alleys contains only them. The majority of temples are Buddhist temples, though I’ve seen a mosque here too.
The size varies and probably depends on the status of the person.
Though the country is a bit poor one, every more or less significant building, namely the shop, house, or a hotel has a little buddist temple near it. Perhaps it needed to pray regularly, without visiting the “big brothers” of the temples.
There’re also lots of monks in the town. During the trip, lots of people, especially in Malaysia asked me about where I’m from and stuff, or looked strangely on me. Lao people are nice and very calm. Lao monks are extremely calm. I’ve managed to get a photo with them even twice.
Pha That Luang.
