If you walk East To West on this road you will find most of the Temples in Luang Prabang on either side. A great find among more great finds.

This one was impressive along with many impressive temples in Luang Prbabang and after a while their beauty is somehow lost. You will find it on Sakkarine Road

The temple looks awesome, and it is one of the best temples in Luang Prabang. YOo can see much of the temple even at the entrance. The compound is quite packed and there are many boy monks staying there.

you don't need to go away from Luang Praban center to visit this amazing Buddhist temple. Very impressive golden building with a lot of cute little kids monks around

Probably one of the best temples in Luang Pranang. I found several nice photo ops. Certainly worth the visit as it's easy to get to.

Gorgeous, well-preserved temple, and it's accessible for less mobile visitors (no stairs up to this temple).

While one of the many Wats in town, should visit this place for a nice tall Buddhe statue outside of the Wat.

Every day at 5:30 pm the monks gather to chant for one hour. Visitors are welcome to join provided that we dress appropriately and sit at the back. A good time to leave the cellphone and camera at home, sit and enjoy.
