The Ho Pra Keo was built in 1565 as the royal family’s personal chapel. For a brief while in the 18th century, it housed the precious Emerald Buddha that is now housed in the Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. The temple has been converted into a museum that exhibits the gilded throne of Laos, wooden carvings, palm-leaf manuscripts, bronze frog drums, Khmer Buddhist stone tablets etc. that form a part of the ancient treasures of Laos. The adjacent gardens are also used for the exhibition. Amongst the items on display here, there is a 2000-year-old stone jar from the Xieng Khouang Plateau. This location was previously the site of the royal palace of Laos.
