WAT VISOUNNARATH
The most ancient temple of Luang Prabang. It was originally erected in 1515 and was rebuilt in 1898. For some time it housed the Prabang Buddhas until the onset of invasions which included the pirate “black flag” invasion. Its windows, with the wooden railings, are inspired from the Wat Phou temple. Inside you can admire ancient statues and steles. Within the walls you will see that Pathoume or That Mak Mo (know as watermelon stupa because of its similarities to the fruit) which is a stone stupa built by king Visionarath’s wife. Next door, separately by a very city’s most important genies.
