At That Luang Marsh, Chinese Developers Plan to Build a 100m Buddha

Recommended Posts



As part of preparations for a new cultural attraction, a large Buddha image will be built at the That Luang Marsh Specific Economic Zone (SEZ).


According to the developer, authorities have held conversations with the project owner about the construction of the Buddha image, which will begin soon.


Dr. Kikeo Khaykhamphithoun, Laos' Deputy Prime Minister, paid a visit to the project office and met with the developers last week to learn more about the project.


He claims that the Buddha image creation project is intended to promote Laos' culture and history.


Dr. Kikeo Khaykhamphithoun stated, "The gigantic Buddha picture would boost Buddhism in the era of globalization while also encouraging economic development in the SEZ."

Dr. Kikeo Khaykhamphithoun remarked, "The project will provide a complete history of Lao culture to eliminate any complications that may arise following construction."


The 100-meter-high Buddha figure will be built at the That Luang Marsh SEZ by Wan Feng Shanghai Real Estate Company, a Chinese developer.


The That Luang Marsh Special Economic Zone (SEZ) has a total area of 365 hectares and was established in 2012.


This program is being used by the government as a model for SEZ growth in Laos, with the goal of attracting more international investment.


Residential sections, public parks and green spaces, a lake, a hospital, an education center, restaurants, a sporting complex, and a commercial center will all be included once the project is completed.
