  • Leaving the Wat Xieng Thong and along the way which we brought back to the hotel we stumbled across this temple at 18.00 at the time that they started the evening prayers. We sit down, slipped away from a dozen faithful, and we heard a sequence of dirges punctuated by the most senior monk at which were echoed a dozen young.

  • This temple was at the turn of our hotel, which was the first visit in Laos, I really liked, and above all, not to be on the main street, is not so tourist and much quieter than others

  • We found one morning, this parallel streets where they could quietly attend the procession of monks. This temple is only open to office hours, but what a beauty to discover shiny in the pale light of dawn. A wonder of serenity and beauty

Soon, yes mabaep Vientiane, including color-patterned glass to make beautiful. Couldn't open the Buddha inside the surrounding quiet no more tourists come to visit, even in the inner star thao Luang Prabang.

  • 原本寺廟被摧毀了,這是後來鋼筋水泥重建的建築。參觀不用收費,禮拜六造訪,完全沒有遊客及參拜人潮。
  • Wat Nong Sikhounmuang (means pond pagoda) built for the first time in 1729 in the style of Xieng Khouang. But the Vat was destroyed by the fire of the town in 1774. Rebuilt in 1804, it was damaged by time and weather. Finally the temple was completely rebuilt in 1965 in concrete in the Thai style. This temple houses one of the largest pagodas in Luang Phabang. The pagoda is richly decorated with stencils. A style inspired by that of Vientiane, the temple has one of the prettiest roofs in the blazing colors of thai style.
