This was not as grand or impressive as certain Buddhist temples in other countries. The most impressive part was there was a LOT of Buddha statues.

I love Buddhist temples. I really do. I've visited so many over the years and I think they are just such works of art. And Wat Si Saket is beautiful. It isn't a huge temple, but it is unique with its walls of Buddha statues. and is different from any other temple I've seen. It's the oldest temple in Vientiane... More

Not much here, but it is close to the city center and the history of the Wat makes it a great place for a quick stop.

This temple from built in early 19th century ( 1819 onwards ) is considered as oldest surviving religious site in Vientiane. There is admission ticket for temple that also have a museum exhibiting archeological findings and idols of Buddha. Interestingly the temple is declared as smoke free.

Definitely worth a visit to see the religious place. Gives one a feeling of peace and calm. Remember to dress covering knees and shoulders as sign of respect.

This is the oldest temple in Vientiane and that's why I like it the most. There are really old stupas inside the temple and a lot of Buddhas - 6,800 in total. The main temple is under construction as well though.

Walked by the temple and went in for a visit. The ticket is very cheap, 5000kip. At the there was a movie group shooting a movie of some sort. Vat is pretty small but nice.

Built in 1818 by King Anouvong Built in the Siamese style of Buddhist architecture with much pomp and grandeur was sacked by the Siamese in 1827 due to Anouvong s rebellion The French colonial govt rebuilt it in 1930s but not to its former glory Read more about King Anouvong before visiting his monument at the chao Anouvong park
