Plain of Jars



A plateau in Northern Laos, Asia on which there are over one thousand mysterious stone jars, some of them weighing up to 6 tons. Having survived the 1960's 'secret war' with the USA the Jars remain one of Asia's most significant archaelogical wonders. It is believed that the Jars would have been used to contain the bodies of the deceased until decomposition after which the remains would have been removed and buried or cremated. The practice of 'second burial' is still practiced to this day in the region.
