This is Vientiane’s oldest surviving ‘wat’ or temple. It was built sometime between 1819 or 1824. The cloister walls of this temple are decorated with thousands of images of Buddha. Many of these were damaged in the 1828 Siamese-Lao war. The main point of attraction here is the Khmer-style Buddha seated on a coiled naga. The 5-meter sculpture is on display in front of the main carving of Buddha. The temple is characterised by surrounding verandas, a five-tiered roof, a drum tower and a small library in its premises. It was restored by the French in 1930.
