Hundreds of Buddhas

Yesterday I visited Vat Haw Pra Keo and Vat Sisaket.  Not much has changed in the 10 years since I was last here.  However at Vat Haw Pra Keo they had lots of examples of ancient stone slabs with different inscriptions in different scripts used throughout Lao history.  Amazing to see them in real life.

At Vat Sisaket where there are hundreds Buddha statues an old English tourist asks "why does there need to be so many? Isn't one or two enough?"
