|Wat Sibboudhabat is located at the foot|
of Mount Phousi, just by the edge of the Nam Khan River.
Here is my last group of photos of temples (wats or vats) in the historical UNESCO Heritage-listed Laotian town of Luang Prabang. Temple-visiting is fun if you do not mind walking and wandering for a few hours.
|Wat Pakkhe is within the same complex as|
Wat Sibboudhabat. The panelled door on the left
is supposed to depict Venetian merchants.

|Wat Visoun is a repository of rare Buddha images, and on its |
grounds is the "Water Melon" Stupa or That Mak Mo.
|Wat Aham is guarded by two fierce-looking demons,|
and flanked by two old stupas.
|The simple-looking Wat Aphai is in the shadow of|
Mount Phousi. Its Buddha is protected not by a naga
but a luxuriant bougainvillea tree.
|Wat Muenna is located near the steel pedestrian bridge.|
|Wat Mahathat is a short walk away from the night market.|
|The magnificent mural of Wat Mahathat.|
|Wat Hoxien is well known for its silver naga balustrade.|
