Legend has it that giant wall, which is 15 kilometres long, was erected in the 9th century by the ancient Sikhottabong Kingdom. Some say, however, that it is a natural sandstone formation which was incorporated into the civilization's defense system. The best place to visit the Giant Wall is 8 km north of Thakhaek on Route 13 where it reaches a height of 16 meters with an unbroken section that is 75 meters long. There is a small shrine constructed by the French that contains a statue of the Virgin Mary.
