Wat Si Saket, Vientiane

(650+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Thanks to its sturdy Siamese style architecture, Wat Si Saket stands intact and represents one of the oldest temples in the capitol. The Buddhist compound served as headquarters to the armies of Siam during king Anouvong's rebellion in 1827--which resulted in the city's total destruction and the relocation of its denizens. As you explore the temple halls and courtyard, examine the cloister walls both inside and out, which feature over more than 2,000 images of Buddha made of ceramic and silver. The main hall itself keeps a total of 6,480 Buddha images on its walls. Expect crowds at this popular attraction. With our international travel planner, Vientiane attractions like Wat Si Saket can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It was nice enough temple in town, good place to get away for a bit of quiet. Better temples out of town.  more »
  • I walked from win. So what is is no temple, was crowded with tourists. And small and large variety of Buddha statues enshrined in the corridor around the main hall, there was a very powerful. This is the recommended places.
