Pak Ou Caves

High above the water, along steep steps cut into the pocked limestone cliffs, there are caves in which for centuries the faithful have placed Buddha statues of all sorts and sizes. Cramming them onto rock shelves, jumbling them into crevices, the Lao make offerings of the Buddha to the river spirits, in another melding of superstition and faith.
