We visited our son today at the Santi Forest Monastery in the southern highlands. My short description of it would be 'serenity in the bush'.

There is a meditation cave with a large Buddha statue hand carved out of the sandstone wall by one of the 'Bhikkhuni' (female monk) - no lighting inside and my phone camera did not do it justice; photos below are the cave entrance, the Buddha carving and a statue just outside the cave -

Those statues are amazing! I can not even begin to imagine the talent it took to do those statues.
