  • Another lovely wat in Luang Prabang. Set in lovely serene grounds, the intricate gold gilt make this place beautiful.  more »
  • 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.
  • Very beautiful temple in the center of Luang Prabang, strangely enough no other visitors here, very quiet and peaceful...check out the murals here, very impressive!
  • This Wat has a fairly large compound and located right in town. Like many Wats here multiple-head dragon in silver can be seen at the main walkway and at the entrance. The building is lavishly decorated.
  • Nice peaceful old temple with hardly any tourists
  • Nice temple and less tourist
