  • After you have five or six temples it is more difficult to become excited. Again this temple was very ornate and a pleasant place to visit and walk around. The temple ground were quite large and it was nice to see some monks in attendance.
  • Very beautiful temple in the center of Luang Prabang, strangely enough no other visitors here, very quiet and peaceful...check out the murals here, very impressive!
