It is located down the end of Sakkarine Road near the Nam Khan River and opposite the more populat temples and tends to get lost but it has a most impressive large building and ssssome smaller ones in a smaller square than most. Worth a visit,

For those familiar with Vipassana Meditation and interested in understanding the practice in Luang Prabang, the story is told here at the Buddhist Archives at Wat Khili. In the 1960s, after studying the meditation in Burma and Thailand, Pha Xaisamut Chotiko was determined to teach Vipassana in Luang Prabang and built Wat Pa Phon Phao (you can see the golden... More

This temple may be outshone by the nearby Wat Xieng Thong, but it is no less beautiful. It's very peaceful and quiet throughout the day, with almost few visitors. You can see monks going about their daily lives and doing their chores early in the morning. There's a small shrine behind the temple beautifully decorated with colorful mosaic glasses, similar...

Located opposite Wat Xieng Thong, this wat was built by Chao Kham Sattha in a style similar to temples found in the mountains close to the plain of jars where he came from. There is a colourful tree of life mosaic on the front of the temple which is painted red with gold columns. The colonial style monks quarters attached... More

This may not be for everybody, but if you are interested in the history of photography, or in Buddhist spiritual practice, I rate this one of the most interesting sights in Luang Prabang. The archive here contains photographs going back to the early 20c - some very precious historical documents particularly given the country's traumatic modern history - as well... More

Is located at Wat Street and near to Nam Khan river. Maybe it only cost you 30 minutes time to walk around but its ok to visit as many temple as you can while in Luang Prabang.

We visited just after lunch when the sun was scorching and siesta time was upon the world. The special photography exhibit was locked up and there wasn't really much to see. One young monk dozing in a corner and rousing himself every so often to see what we were up to. I'm told the architecture of the sim is one-of-a-kind... More
