People in Savannaketh believe that That Ing Hang houses a relic of Buddha. Unlike most of the temples in Thailand and Cambodia, the main pagoda is not painted which adds more character to the edifice. We were talking in whispers while we were there.

Well am marrried to a issan girl and temples are her life. We popped in past this one and got blessed by the monk. The market stalls out side are cheap if you like buying handmade gifts 20 baht to enter to temple also

Peaceful and relaxing place. Nothing to do just look :) The pagoda is quite big and very old. Watch local people there to understand culture

The pagoda is quite big, very beautiful with Lan-Xang (Lao) architecture. Not too far from the city center.

Our tuk tuk driver for the afternoon took us here. It's in the middle of nowhere but not that far from Savannakhet. It's an old temple complex with a large stupa. As far as I could tell, all of the notice are in Lao so I could not read them. Apart from one sign that said one area was for... More

While this place isn't remarkable in appearance, I really enjoyed it. It's nice to see local people at prayer without the constant flow of tourists you can get in other places in Asia. I would recommend if you have a few hours to kill whilst in the town. Beady to combine with a nice lunch by the lake on the... More

Beautiful stupa but no shade to cool off from the sun unless you duck in the corridors. There is an entrance fee although I forget how much it was (probably around 5000 kip like most temples) and there are photographers around to capture a family photo. Shops to rent the traditional Lao skirt (required for my sis since she wore... More

Although not grand and super majestic like its famous cousin the that luang stupa in Vientiane, This stupa here in Savannakhet is worth a visit while your in the province. Theres not much to see and not very many tourists around, but if your inclined to see one of Laos many historical ancient structures, this is it. Many buddha artifacts... More

After seeing many tourist sites in SE Asia, That Ing Hang was refreshingly honest. The historic, revered feeling I got there made me feel peaceful but at the same time made me really want to learn and understand more about why this temple is so important to the locals. I would recommend if possible, to visit with a local person... More
