  • King Setathirat, who built the vientiane capital from Luang Prabang, is said to have erected the temple around 16C to solidify its Buddhist status and sovereignty. It was once destroyed by a Siamese attack, but it was restored, and there are many monks from all over the world studying illegality.

  • A temple in the middle of the city. There are many temples in the area. The god of the temple here is like a white elephant, and a statue of a white elephant welcomes you. There is a one-way street in front of the temple, and a bus from the airport stops in front of the temple. It is also close to the next Nanpu Square.

  • Massive temple with very attractive garden area. Well presented. Not a Monk in sight. Shame people use it to park their cars, trucks and scooters.
  • This seemed to be the "busiest" wat in the city center, with lots of people coming and going in preparation for a large festival. The entrances are flanked by white elephant statues, and the complex itself is large with lots of ornate architecture on the outside of the buildings.
