We visited this temple while on our way to visit the bigger Wat Xieng Thong (Golden City Temple). It is one of several temples along Sakkarine road. Slightly bigger and more beautiful than the other temples along this road. Also free to visit.

This is a working Buddhist temple with workshops. One of many enjoyable stops while walking the streets of Luang Prabang, which was such a welcome change after leaving the chaos of Bangkok.

If you happen to be walking or biking past, it's worth a quick look. No entrance fee. The paint and restoration work are nicely done. Quiet, peaceful grounds.... off the main tourist track heading toward the end of the peninsula.

Depending on how many temples you have already visited, this one is worth only a cursory look as it is free to walk around.
