I was surprised to find that this was a newly built shrine in Vientiane. Make sure you're appropriately dressed with knees/shoulders covered. Typical temple for the area.

This large and impressive building is part of a large temple complex in active use, and of less historical interest than the older sites out in the country.

As the old city pillar of VTE is in opposite Wat Si Muang temple, this one was beautifully built a few years ago.
