The 700-800 year old stupa and Buddha statues discovered beneath the Mekong River in Bokeo province.

Deputy Director General of the National Heritage Department of the Ministry of Information and Culture, Mr Viengkeo Souksavatdy, said he believes the relics may be from the 13th or 14th century, in the Lane Xang era. “But the area is so little studied it is hard to say at this stage,” he added.
