Laos has been a home to various minorities and the Vietnamese are one such group who have made Vientiane their home. The harassment of the French dominants and the advent of a deadly famine forced around two million Vietnamese citizens to move to Laos for survival. Here, they were welcomed with open arms and allowed to reside freely along with the locals. In the honour of their traditions, they built Buddhist temples in Vietnamese styles, one of which is the Phat Tich Temple. This temple is at the foot of the Phat Tich Mountain which hosts a giant stone statue of Buddha on its peak. The beautiful pagoda is evidence of the various influences of the neighbouring countries of Laos in its culture.
