Lateral Face Of Wat Xieng Thong

Wat xieng thong

Its roof was many-layered

Shot at Wat Xieng Thong, a Buddhist temple in Luang Prabang, Laos.

Many Buddhist temples were there in the ancient capital of Laos. Every temple embraced their own monks. So I wondered how many monks lived in this small city. The monks walked everywhere in the city. It was impossible to walk without seeing monks.

Walking while seeing monk, I came to a Buddhist temple which stood on the edge of the old town. The architecture in this photo was the main building of the temple built in 1560. It was a most magnificent temple in the city. Although the hall was enough old, it had access to power in these days. Some electrical wires stretched to the hall.
