    Located across the Mekong River in Laos, is a beautiful temple. There is a view point, and many, especially the sacred relics Cliff shadows won't be considered to come visit.

    In the city of Chiang Saen on the main avenue just two blocks from the Mekong River rises this complex of temples and pagodas. Accessed by a spectacular and endless stairway flanked by impressive dragons. The stepped path leads you also to the monumento-hito of the golden triangle. Along the way appreciate temples, shops of souvenirs and beautiful main pagoda with their pointy roofs typically Thai. The environment is a dream with tropical vegetation everywhere! Interesting to know this pagoda when you go to the milestone of the golden triangle!
