Wat Visounarath Luang Prabang
Wat Visounarath is the oldest standing temple in Luang Prabang, originally erected in 1512 by King Phothisarat and rebuilt in 1898. The carved wooden railings in the temple’s windows are reminiscent of the Vat Phou temple in the south of Laos. Inside you can admire ancient statues and steles. Also located on the grounds of this temple is the That Pathoume, also known as That Mak Mo, (the watermelon stupa) because of its shape.
