It was the first temple I saw in Vientiane. There isn't anything special about it but it makes me a bit nostalgic and sentimental. It's worth seeing if you don't want to visit a regular Lao temple with no tourists.

Wat Dongpalan is located along Dongpalan Street and is a beautiful temple with white painted walls and nice paintings adorning the upper walls with a sweeping roof. A quiet temple receiving few visitors, we enjoyed the peace and quiet of our visit.

This review is quite late. Wat Dongpalan is another temple we saw while doing the Walking City Tour at our own pace. We stopped by to take some photos. There were stray dogs outside the doors of the temple so we did not bother to go inside.
