  • In the entrance area and the ceiling in the temple, the temple complex shows impressive decorations. In the outdoor complex are boats, a small temple with a drum, the standing Buddha at a small temple and other things to see. Red color on the outer walls and rich golden ornaments. One of the most beautiful temples in Luang Prabang.

  • As another measure to which I must attend. When arriving in the capital, some monks at this temple has a unique stand with big guys. Don't miss the decisive moment.
