Tam Ting caves, Laos

Laos' Tam Ting caves, which to locals means "caves of a thousand Buddhas," embody centuries of religion and craftsmanship. These caves, made up of a lower and an upper cave, contain 4,000 wooden Buddhas carved between the 18th and 20th centuries. The caves are about 15 miles from Luang Prabang along the Mekong River.
