3.4/5 based on 60 reviews on the web
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. Put Wat Ho Phakeo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Vientiane vacation generator.
