  • Wat Mixai is one of the oldest in the city, traces of its existence are already present in the second half of the 1500 at the time when the capital is moved from Luang Prabang to Vientiane. The function of school of meditation becomes apparent over the presence of a real school, also from the cycle of murals illustrating the Buddha in various forms and situations in the Act of teaching, very nice at the front side the top of bright green and glistening in the Sun, while below the yellow walls do not appear in very good condition, are currently undergoing , and part of the furniture are located in the back of the arcade. During the walk along the Setthathilath certainly deserves a moment of attention.
