Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a few meters away from famous "Wat Visounnarath" temple and its "That Mak Mo" stupa, you will find "Wat Aham", one of the most revered shrines of Luang Prabang. Also known as the "Monastery of the Blossoming Heart", the actual building dates from the beginning of the 19th century and was built on the site of a much older temple dating from the 16th century. This is a small temple and its prayer hall is decorated with colorful murals. The main Buddha image is set on a pedestal and is surrounded by some smaller Buddha images. Outside, two small stupas and two enormous "Banyan" trees (the Buddhist sacred"Bhodi") are believed to be home of "Thevatuluang", the guardian spirit of Luang Prabang. May "Thevatuluang" protect your journey through Laos - the "Land of a Million Elephants"! Enjoy!

Cute small temple adjacent to Wat Visoun, nice frescoes inside depicting Lao history and culture. Nice photo op with scary statues affront!

This one is away from the main stretch of town, but still easily accessible on foot. A smaller temple, but charming precisely because of that.

This is adjacent to Wat Visoin, has good shade areas to cool down, also peaceful. You may see some monks also. The temple is simple but nice.

This is a rather small and not really visited by most of the visitors to Luang Prabang. It is in a quiet area in the city and it's a very relaxing place to see (as you may have the whole place for you). There are many shops around that sell souvenirs at very good prices. Highly recommended.

This was the 2nd Wat I visited on my weekend visit to Luang Prabang as it was on the way into town from where I was staying at the Le Bel Air resort. Quite a nice Wat with a fairly elaborate main temple exterior.

We’re there while visiting Wat Visoun next door. It’s a temple with many monks residing there. It’s a quiet place near our hotel. Smaller than Wat Visoun but yet has its charm.

This temple was a little different from the others. Lots of working monks when we went. There are gift shops with good prices next to it in the temple complex.

Right next to famous Wat Visoun and That Makmo, Wat Aham is a quiet working temple. At the entrance there's two special golden buddha statues in front of two massive trees, also illuminated in the evenings.
