It is not so much as the architecture as the atmosphere which is attractive. Sitting in the Wat itself gives one a contemplative frame of mind. Go around the small campus and admire the painted designs, the stories from the life of the Buddha, but that is more or less the same in all the Buddhist monasteries. But this temple, and a very few others, that have something extra to give to the world-weary.

Thank Lene-Bappa

This is a small complex but interesting. The murals on the walls show some unusual scenes and elephant-like animals. Make sure women wear clothes which cover shoulders and knees or you have to rent clothing.

This has to be one of the most beautiful temples in Laos. It has beautiful lines, when you look at its roof and also is beautiful inside. It is situated at the end of what the locals call the Luang Prabang peninsula, so it is very easy to be found. It is also surrounded by other smaller Buddhist temples, so coming to visit Wat Xieng Mouane is a must.
