Find good fortune at Wat Si Muang, a wooden worship temple known for its good luck, attracting visitors to come and make a wish. If the wish is granted, people return to the temple to offer gifts and to give thanks for their fulfilled wish. Intricate details and carvings engulf both the inside and outside of the building, and the golden shade of the walls helps it stand out from the surroundings. Don't miss the golden Buddha statue that sits under a tree in the garden, in front of the temple. See Wat Si Muang and all Vientiane has to offer by arranging your trip with our Vientiane tour itinerary planner.

Most spiritual temple in city. Well known and great place to visit each special religious event
