Wat Si Muang - Vientiane Laos

Located at the eastern side of Thanon Setthathirath, Wat Si Muang is a popular place of worship in Vientiane; the temple has many colorful stories and folklore associated with it. As per a popular story, when the temple was being constructed in 1563, a pregnant woman offered herself as a sacrifice to pacify the angry spirits. The woman is believed to have thrown herself into a deep pit that was dug where the temple’s central pillar was to be placed. This central pillar serves as the center of the town that has sprung up all around the temple. As per the local belief, all those who pray here can have their wishes granted, if some sacrifice is offered in return.

 

Visitors are greeted by the statue of King Sisavang Vong at the entrance of the temple. The temple interiors are decorated with colorful and artistic designs depicting the scenes from the life of Lord Buddha. There are golden pillars inside along with colorful ceiling friezes. Though there is no entrance fee, parking charges have to be paid by all those who need to avail the parking facility.

Opening Hours: The temple is open from 06:00 to 19:00 every day
