Wat Ho Phakeo, Vientiane

3.8
See religious art of Laos at Wat Ho Phakeo, as well as manuscripts on dried leaf. Although rebuilt, the temple resembles the original one and boasts a 19th century-Bangkok architectural style. In the garden, witness 2,000-year-old stone, which people used in burial ceremonies. The entrance highlights Naga, a mythological snake. A long row of stone Buddha statues, some of which date back to period between 6th and 9th centuries, line the terraces. Two wooden carved doors lead to the congregation hall. Continue to gilded throne, where Emerald Buddha used to be. Find out how to plan Vientiane trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • The old temple is already destroyed in the war with Thailand and now the temple is built with the help of other countries. However, the famous Jade Buddha is taken by Thailand.  more »
  • Temple in Vientiane where they are, was playing a very solemn air. Now that looks like old Buddha images still can be.

  • And past closing time so far visited the evening couldn't come inside. However, had become a place and lit up, stand out from the surrounding perimeter fence. Revisited during opening hours the next day, one of the attractions in Vientiane and the foreign tourists stood out.
