  • very quiet temple, most authentic. beautiful painted carved snakes
  • After you have five or six temples it is more difficult to become excited. Again this temple was very ornate and a pleasant place to visit and walk around. The temple ground were quite large and it was nice to see some monks in attendance.
  • This is a big temple , lot's of young Lama's practice here . They study and do chanting . This place is open for all tourist . It's closed at 6 . We stay here for one night as we are traveling in bicycle . We asked them if we can stay there the monk say yes but morning we wake up with local people around us telling us go from here , they were angry . Actually in Laos it's not allowed to stay in Temple .
  • Very quiet temple with practicing monks. Not as spectacular as other temples, it also does not have plenty of funds, it's a good place to take time and reflect.
  • Nice and free temple. Good to start the temple tour of Luang Prabang, so that you’ll not be disappointed.
