The Phra Ban Statue Shrine stands on the grounds of the National Museum. Even though it is located on the museum grounds, it houses what is arguably the most important Buddha statue in Laos. It is the Phra Ban statue that gave Luang Prabang its name.

Although it was supposed to be an important building, the atmosphere was very Southeast Asian or idyllic. The woman whose job it is to watch over the building sits on a chair at the entrance, absorbed in her knitting. Occasionally, as if remembering, she would look out of the shrine. The woman seemed to be at home rather than at work.
