Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 160 reviews on the web
At Wat Mai Suwannapumaram, admire an ornately decorated early 19th-century temple, supposedly deemed too beautiful to destroy by the invading Chinese. The lavishly adorned structure is steeped in gold, with black pillars stenciled in an aureate pattern, and a large golden relief on the facade imparting the story of the Buddha's highest incarnation as Vessentar. Exploring the red ochre interior, you'll find an abundant collection of Buddha statues, including a large golden portrayal surrounded by many smaller versions. Bear in mind shoes must be removed while inside the temple, though photography is permitted, so don't be shy with your camera. A visit to Wat Mai Suwannapumaram represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Luang Prabang vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Many temple indeed has many temples in Luang Prabang, visiting many places in one day possible, but something like, frankly, will be confused. Hopefully one day two degrees is ideal, but Japanese is impatient, and. Here by other brilliant, and it was good.

  • Touring the temples of this city while one speaks with monks is an unforgettable experience, but if above coincides with the celebration of a Buddhist ceremony, then the experience is simply unforgettable. See how the monks showering in the street, as they laugh and as they attempt to interact with you is really fun. This place is to enjoy it, to relax and to appreciate the life of peace and serenity where the monks live.

  • How can you negatively review a Buddhist Monastery? Some people just don't get it?
  • This temple has Buddha 2 elements, lol. Notice each other, and the Bishop, the last element of a Lao Buddhist temple.

  • The Laotian new year tonight and Paul was here night concerned free of charge. Were the masked scenes of the cultural heritage of Laos. So probably came here all the inhabitants of the city that would take part in a religious ceremony lighting the water.
