Sisaket Temple


The only ancient temple remaining intact after the defeat of the Siamese in 1828. It’s located in the center of the old city, where it was built in 1818 by King Anouvong. The old monastery stands intact in its original form and is certainly one of the most interesting in the country. Inside the main hall, the courtyard walls house hundreds of little shelves containing a total of 6,840 Buddha images.
