From Tokyo to Luang Prabang and Jiuzhaigou to Bangkok, Buddhism has had a profound affect on Asia.  Originating in India, Buddhism entered China via the Silk Road and later made its way to both Korea and Japan.  The southern school of Buddhism settled in places such as Laos and Thailand and threaded its way to southern China.  Each country or locale has melded Buddhism to reflect its own culture.

Three Buddhas of Luang Prabang - Luang Prabang, a picturesque and historic town, located along the Mekong River in Laos, was designated a World Heritage Site in 1995.  This ancient royal city abounds with traditional Buddhist temples and colonial architecture: one complimenting the other.  
 
Wat Xieng Thong is definitely one of the jewels of Luang Prabang.  Built in 1560, it is richly decorated with coloured glass and gold that shines in the bright sunlight.   These ‘Three Buddhas of Luang Prabang’ are amongst the collection of statues found deep in one of the several temple buildings.
