Understated Buddhist Temple

Lovely ambience, wedding venue but sadly you can't capture the lovely frescoes on film. Respect for religion is important , but a shame as I wanted to write about them. So enjoy... read more

If you are visiting Vientiane it is one of the must seen attractions. The temple is the most important in the capital and it has a museum.

Lovely ambience, wedding venue but sadly you can't capture the lovely frescoes on film. Respect for religion is important , but a shame as I wanted to write about them. So enjoy the ambience of the courtyard and pay respects to Lord Buddha.

Another of the must see places in Vientiane--just to see all the Buddha's on the walls. It is a pretty temple and quite interesting. You do get tired of temples so come early to this one.

The most interesting temple we saw. There are 10,000 to see. Of course most of them are small, only a few cams (inches) high. Still, worth a visit. The temple like lots of temples in the area is "under reconstruction".

Worth a visit for its unique beauty, cultural heritage as well as for the very important, serious and professional restoration project underway, recovering the wonderful art work. Go inside, walk around, and appreciate this easily accessible small jewel across the street from the presidential palace. Entrance fee for foreigners is 5000 kip (60 cents or 20 Thai baht).

If you have time for only one wat in this town or are on the verge of temple burn out make it this one . The oldest Wat in the city , it has an intimate serene atmosphere. The intricate interior murals are being painstakingly preserved . Hundreds of small Buddha statues are recessed into the walls . Very accessible... More

If you want to see the local culture and experience the serenity of a spot, take in thew two temples almost across the street from each other and near the Presidential Palace. Nice collection of Buddhas. Lovely architecture. Well kept grounds. It won't take long and you'll walk away refreshed.
