“Tranquility At Its Best”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Amazing place - beautiful, tranquil, quiet corners to sit in, amazing buildings and when the sun hits some of the corners on these buildings it is truly mesmerizing.

“The most beautiful temple in Luang Prabang!”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

It required 20000 KIP for enter fee, but I think it's worth to go.
The colorful mosaic decorated in the facade of the temple that tell us about how residents' living in the ancient time is very attractive!

“Peaceful”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

The temple was one of the places we planned to visit in Luang Prabang. We spent slightly more than an hour there admiring the architecture as well as taking pictures. We found the place to be peaceful and quiet as there weren't too many people when we visited. Certainly worth a visit when in Luang Prabang!

“Outstanding Buddhist temple complex”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

A beautiful temple in the Cambodian architectural style with large statues of Buddha inside. The temple walls are nicely decorated. The compound also contains a relatively modern building containing the carriage and urns used to transport the last kings to cremation.
