The Wat Mixay temple is a complete lesson in Laotian architecture. The most spectacular part of this building is its roof. This temple is relatively smaller when comparing it with its contemporaries and other temples in Vientiane. However, the architectural style and decoration of this temple can hardly be compared to any other. The main altar as well as the path leading up to it has been covered with spectacular paintings. If you look closely, all the paintings depict Buddha seated in session with his disciples. It is said that this temple was built to spread his teachings to his followers like in the paintings. There are several Buddhist monks living in the temple premises who are willing to offer their wisdom for the tourists and other visitors.
