Like most other monuments in Xieng Khouang Province, this one has seen a fair bit of damage from aerial bombing in the war but a beautiful chedi (stupa) still stands in this rustic village, which hints at the former glory of the area. Said to date back to the 15th century, it is slender, elegant Lao style chedi, but even more tapered than normal. The upper half of the chedi is covered with beautiful stucco designs, which are so rich they suggest that this temple had a wealthy or powerful local patron.
The nearby wat is more ruined, but the base of the main vihaan (hall) is still original with a very elegant design, The brickwork is badly damaged in parts but again the stucco decoration is lovely and shows real craftmanship. The roof and body of the temple are modern replacements, Hopefully, money will be found to restore the original woodwork roof and pillars eventually, It is a rare surviving example of Xieng Khouang architecture. There are still monks on the grounds of the wat in wooden buildings, Come here in conjunction with nearby Tham Pha.
