“Nice grounds and temple setting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

A beautiful garden area as well as a museum area inside the temple. It's worth the visit and offers good photo opportunities.

“Many artefacts including a Jar from the Plain of Jars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

One of the top attractions in Vientiane. This temple formerly housed the Emerald Buddha which is now pride of place in Bangkok's Wat Pra Keo. It is now a museum housing sculptures from around Laos. In the grounds there is a small pavilion with a Jar from the Plain of Jars in. You cant take photos inside but you can take photos all around the building until the moment you step in. There are lots of beautiful bronze buddhas in different poses around the porch surrounding the building. It is open between 8-4pm, closed for an hour at lunch noon-1pm and costs 5000 kip.

“The most worthy place to come”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Spraying water to every single statues is such an amazing feeling to me. I feel peace here.
I bought lucky bracelets for me and my family, friends. During festival (Pi Mai Lao), people sold food everywhere

“Museum temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

A very graceful temple set in peaceful gardens with none of the usual red & gold garishness of most of the Wats. The outside is ornately carved with many buddha statues. Inside is packed with artifacts of historic interest but it is a pity that they are not labelled in English & that no photographs are allowed.
