In a country with so many Wats it is easy to grow tired of visiting them. Eventually they all look the same. Wat Si Saket is different. It is older in style and layout. There are over 6000 Buddha’s in the Wat. Some of these are damaged during invasions and were collected and stored at the Wat. The main building is decorated with fine detailed paintings. Most are faded with time but are visible when you take the time to look carefully.
Entry price is low and location near the presidential palace means you will probably be passing some time during your trip, if there is only time to visit one Wat in Vientiane make sure Wat Si Saket is that one. More
