This temple was built in A.D.1565 by King Xaisetathirat making it one of the oldest temples in Vientiane and therefore no longer an active place of worship. Surrounding the temple and its exquisitely kept gardens are 10 staircases, each intricately and symmetrically carved in the shape of dragons, adding to the distinct structure and design. Inside is a museum housing ancient statues and materials from around the country but, unfortunately for many tourists, all explanations are in Lao.
