On our tour the next stop was a market and we told our guide that this was not what we came for and we preferred to explore the town so he offered to take us to this temple. We got there just after lunch and it was busy with Monks blessing visitors and it was fantastic to see the ceremony. Very enjoyable.

A very beautiful temple in the heart of the city. Definitely a Vientiane sight not to be missed. Nice little drinks stand outside to cool down at.

This temple was the only temple not to br damaged by Thai forces, in the early 19th century. Si Saket retains its old Vientiane style and charm with its detailed murals and cloisters housing nearly 10,000 tiny buddha images

I highly enjoyed walking through this historical building. Didn't care so much for the sculptures etc inside, but just building itself. Beautiful, grand building with great carvings and sculptures outside.

Well worth visiting to get the sense of the history and importance of Buddhism in Laos. The preservation of the site and opportunity to watch/hear ceremonies.
