Lao water pond garden

Mini nagas in a water pond garden

Complete with lilly pads, fish, plants, and small naga (Lao: nak) statues.

I found this while browsing and walking around a small temple in the suburbs of Vientiane.  Although, the fish don't quite show in the picture, the pond was full of them. 

The large rock formation in the background looks almost natural but upon closer inspection, it isn't.  It's made out of concrete and made to look like natural stone.  It had slots and crevices all over it where a variety of plants were placed.  As the plants grew out and overtook the rock formation, it added to natural look of it.
