A Pleasant Temple Complex

A nice temple complex with well maintained buildings. Quiet but interesting. Whilst Luang Prabang has many temples, this is worth a visit if in Vientiane.

It was nice enough temple in town, good place to get away for a bit of quiet. Better temples out of town.

Well worth a stop, even if you are going to Luang Prabaang later. Quiet and well maintained. No admission fee. Take off your shoes before going into the temple. Also stroll around the grounds and admire the building from several sides.

The temple is very old and the decoration and wall paintings inside were amazing. We loved the cloisters with all the Buddha's. It's unfortunate if a tour group turn up as it spoils the serenity of the temple and it's grounds. Would recommend a visit to this wonderful piece of history.

This Stupa is an iconic part of Lao culture. It doesn't take that long to see, but is impressive and beautiful.

The temples in Laos begin to look the same after some time but Si Saket is pretty outstanding and the history is fascinating. I think this is one of the "must see" sites in Vientiane.

The temple is located very close to the centre of the city. Small temple of immense historical significance to Laos

This is one place you must visit if you have no time to see all the temples in Vientiane as it is the oldest and most famous to be seen.
