Wat Xieng Thong, Luang Prabang in Laos

Luang Prabangs most magnificent Buddhist Temple “Wat Xieng Thong” is located on the northern tip of the peninsula by the Nam Khan and the Mekong River. The order to build this historical monument in Laos gave King Setthathirat in 1560. A visit here at Wat Xieng Thong is really worthwhile because of the great temple reliefs, the beautiful architecture and the holy Buddha images in the chapel. The life tree mosaic on red ground of the wall from the ordination hall is really impressive and often photographed by tourists and believers. If you wake up early you can watch the monks how they clean the temple courtyard of the Xieng Thong Temple in the UNESCO Town Luang Prabang. The admission fee was in September 09 20000 Lao Kip. For us it was a highlight on our trip to LP in Laos and I can recommend a visit here at Wat Xieng Thong for all people who interested in historical and beautiful temples in Asia.
