  • This temple also named Visoun who was one of the most influential Kings in the history of the country. It is the oldest and the most loved and visited by the Laotian people. Inside a large wooden Buddha surrounded by other small statues of Buddha there is small and other ornaments. It was rebuilt several times. It is the only stupa shaped Lotus in the country. We had the opportunity to see a group of young monks singing in its interior.

  • This temple is notable at first glance, only a huge stupa, located outside, but, in fact, inside there are many Buddha statues, each plate in English detailing its origin and differences. Very interesting and you can do without a guide, the temple is not crowded.
