Most enchanting and historic Buddhist monastery in the country, Wat Xieng Thong is hard to give a miss. Really a delight to wander through, the main temple is a graceful structure dominating the monastery. At Pure Laos, we help you get a glimpse of one of the most significant temples in Laos, Wat Xieng Thong. A religious emblem, this is one of the highest symbols of Buddhism.

Luang Prabang is well known for beautiful Buddhist temples and Wat Xieng Thong is an outstanding example here. Regardless of whether you are out on an adventure trip or a family holiday, you must check out on the most historically significant as well as impressive of all wats. The gateway to Luang Prabang, this site is famous as the coronation ground for Lao kings as well as a gathering place for annual festivals.

Created in 1560, the temple is in original form though repairs have been undertaken. It was considered a ceremonial gateway to the town and the visiting dignitaries as well as soon to be crowned kings arrived through it. You are bound to be struck by the elegance of this complex. The sacred structure is enjoyable no doubt, but the space surrounding it does not lag behind either.

We, at Pure Laos, help to get a glimpse of Lao temple architecture with Wat Xieng Thong. It presents a two-tiered roof with ornate mosaics. If you are all set to dive into the rich cultural past of Laos, get in touch with us and enjoy a memorable trip to Wat Xieng Thong.
