The Wat Sala Kaew Koo (or Wat Kek) is a mix of Buddhism, Hinduism and Brahmanism. This temple is the brainchild of Luang Pu Bunleua Surirat, a monk who lived in Laos prior to coming to Thailand to avoid the communist takeover of Thailand. There is a mirror temple on the Laos side of the river, on which the same monk worked. The monk and his followers crafted statue images of Shiva, Vishnu, and Buddha alongside images of a number of other religiously significant figures. Most are made of concrete and some up to 25 metres high. The monk gained a huge following in the area and in Laos.
