World Peace Gong
Located at the Patuxai Park in Vientiane is this tribute to world peace, the World Peace Gong. It's hung under a roof structure at the eastern most tip of the park, facing heavy traffic. You might not even notice it unless you were driving around the large roundabout that is the area where Patuxai Monument and Park essentially are.
The gong was gifted to Laos by the World Peace Committee, an organization that has Indonesian and Swiss roots, that promotes peace and a one world, one people philosophy. There are several other peace gongs around the world.
