Within the compound of Wat Xieng Thong is this lovely little building/chapel, which houses an array of royal funerary items - including a 10metre high Royal funeral carriage, smaller funeral hearses and Royal family funeral urns (including the ashes of King Sisavang Vong). There are also some display cabinets of royal puppets, which are well worth seeing. The building is decorated with rather ornate gilt panels.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
