  • A lovely temple right in the heart of the city as many are. At the gates though there are statues which make this one slightly more unique for Laos, ( more Thai style).  more »
  • Because wats are everywhere, simple wat as this becomes so common and the peculiarity and specialness of them is lost.  more »
  • No admission fee. Can walk around the grounds first and take photos. Must remove shoes before entering the temple. Easy to stop here when walking in the city.  more »
