This may not be for everybody, but if you are interested in the history of photography, or in Buddhist spiritual practice, I rate this one of the most interesting sights in Luang Prabang. The archive here contains photographs going back to the early 20c - some very precious historical documents particularly given the country's traumatic modern history - as well as modern photographs of forest meditation retreats and monastic ceremonies. I was particularly interested to see good coverage of women's spirituality, often overlooked. Not always open, but do try to get to see the exhibit. If you are lucky, and I was, you will find a young curator who was a novice at the time some of the photos were taken and can tell you about Hans Berger's work and the background to the photographs.

I don't usually buy books when I'm travelling. I did buy the books of photographs that are sold here, and reckon them a bargain even though they are not cheap.

Is located at Wat Street and near to Nam Khan river. Maybe it only cost you 30 minutes time to walk around but its ok to visit as many temple as you can while in Luang Prabang.

We visited just after lunch when the sun was scorching and siesta time was upon the world. The special photography exhibit was locked up and there wasn't really much to see. One young monk dozing in a corner and rousing himself every so often to see what we were up to. I'm told the architecture of the sim is one-of-a-kind but unless you were an authority on Laotian sims I suspect this really won't thrill you.
I'm not saying don't go there, but I'd say you should plan it as one stop on a multi-attraction day. Am I being too polite? Hey, at least it's free.
