Wat Lao Veluwanaram, Ontario. Founded in 2003 and almost completed in 2012

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In 1997, Wat Lao Veluwanaram purchased 29.477 ha (72.84 ac) of land in the Town of Caledon to construct a temple for the Wat Lao Community.

The building Permit was issued on September 19th 2003.

In 2004 - 2006 the construction has been completed by mostly volunteers from Lao community.

It is still some construction material on the site now, (Nov 2011)but the temple looks beautifuly out of place on the side of the hill!

There are about 400 members, but I bet many more show up for Lao New Year in April.

I did not realize the sky has this dynamic, until I looked it, at my computer.

I took several shots, but only this one had this unusual radiation!
