Mainly under construction, temple itself isn't worth it but the surrounding buildings are, you can see a giant golden buddha laying, some nice paintings inside a temple right to the complex itself

Beautiful to view! The stupa is under renovation might not be worth paying to go inside until finished.

반대편에 입구 들어갈수 있음 10,000kip. 그치만 안에는 특별히 볼만한건 모르겠음. Has enterance on the opposite side of construction. 10,000 kip for admission fee but not sure it s worthy unless u re a budhist.

Pha That Luang is the Lanxang culture and the Lao National Icon. It is innovating some part of the stupa. However, we can visit it from the back door. Many Thai tourist visit the place to buy souvenirs.

Seeing that this is the most important religious monument in Laos, one gets that feel as you approach. The road leading to it crosses an intersection which is vast. Like Red Square . The car park too is huge. Then you have the Wat and...More

The site is visited by a lot of people. We took a tuk-tuk to reach it and also to come back to the centre. The site is quite interesting and it is quite authentic.
