  Stupa That Luang
by muddybok

That Luang was first erected in 1566, but attacks in the past left it into ruins. The reconstruction work by French at the beginning of last century had restored the stupa to its present look.

The stupa was said to be best visit at sundown when its gold shine out. I personally do not get to see it, because I have quite a few things to do the other side of the town.

Open daily from 8am to 12pm & 1pm - 4pm.
Entrance: 2000Kip

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
