See religious art of Laos at Wat Ho Phra Keo, as well as manuscripts on dried leaf. Although rebuilt, the temple resembles the original one and boasts a 19th century-Bangkok architectural style. In the garden, witness 2,000-year-old stone, which people used in burial ceremonies. The entrance highlights Naga, a mythological snake. A long row of stone Buddha statues, some of which date back to period between 6th and 9th centuries, line the terraces. Two wooden carved doors lead to the congregation hall. Continue to gilded throne, where Emerald Buddha used to be. Find out how to plan Vientiane trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
Wat Ho Phra Keo Reviews
Stunning facade with high red and gold beams and is worth including in your downtown wanderings. Entrance fee K10,000 Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful. more »
This is a temple that has been turned into a museum. Lush beautiful setting, the main building is stunning but as a museum it fails to be very informative. more »
The temple itself looks nice from the outside, but once inside its quite dimly lit and with the amount of people when I went it wasn't that enjoyable. Maybe would have been better if there's less people. But, even so I think paying 10K kip for this is a bit too steep. There's no explanation at all so you're just there to look at this place. The only reason you'd pay 10K kip for this place is if you're really desperate to go to the toilet and you happen to be next to this place.
Pretty restored temple with some displays inside, although pretty much no signage or explanation of what most things are. The standard 10,000 kip entry fee applies.
