While I was there a group of artists were restoring the murals around the walls and ceiling. So no photos were allowed. It will look lovely once it is all restored. It was good to see they are preserving these ancient paintings.

Peaceful, beautiful and serene environment! Certainly very different from the rest of the temples! The overall feel is kinda nostalgic... like being in a place of a different era!

A lovely temple. Such a shame about the painting degradation but great that they've got a restoration plan in place! Worth a trip!

We visited with a guide and he explained lots of the key information to us. There are many many old and ancient Buddha's here. Definitely worth a visit as part of your tour of Vientaine. (Legs need to be covered)

It isn't very large, but it is one of the nicest and more historic temples in Vientiane. When the renovation of the wall paintings is complete it'll probably be wonderful, but it will be some time.
