“Buddhas of all shapes and sizes and nice murals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Worth a visit to see the many buddhas housed here. The grounds are typically relaxing and ornate. The temple in the centre of the complex contains some really nice murals. There are a few information boards to provide that bit of detail too.
Only 5,000kip - so well worth it.

So peaceful, so pleasant to walk around... makes you feel at peace with yourself. It is always a must for me whenever I go back to Laos.

“Rundown”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I know you are poor country, but a little pride could be shown in the upkeep of one of your most holy sites.
Try picking up the trash once a decade.
