We visited this wat after going to Heuan Chan Heritage House which is nearby. It's a small wat and we didn't stay there for long. As with all wats in the area, it's ornately decorated.

The veneration of Buddha is expressed through stunning decoration and artwork in the group of buildings (including shrines and pavilions) comprising the Wat Xieng Mouane monastery. There is a modest entry fee to support the upkeep of these precious buildings.

This impressive golden building houses a funeral boat within. This funeral boat was apparently made and used for the king. There are also many Buddha statues at the back and one can leave a written message in the hands of one of the statues.

Unfortunately, many reviewers are confusing this temple with Wat Xieng Thong, which is located at the tip of the peninsula. Wat Xieng Mouane is much smaller and located more toward the center of the Old Quarter. There is no entrance fee for this temple. That...More

Worth seeing if you’re choosing a couple of temples to see in Laos. There is an entry fee of 20,000kip. The golden carving on the outside are quite impressive and in the afternoon sun the sun strikes it nicely.

Sat beside the banks of the Mekong River, this old Buddhist Temple and monastery was recently renovated but still maintains its old charm. Worth a visit
