Wat Phat Luang


  • Wat Phat Luang (' the golden lotus bud ') in Vientiane Laos is the Nation's symbol for its Buddhist religion and national identity. It is constructed on the site on a hill in the north west of Vientiane and on the site of a previous stupa of Khmer origin. Contruction of Wat Phat Luang commenced in 1566.
  • Wat Phat Luang has been the subject of two attacks, first by the Haw armies from Yunnan and later the Siamese in 1828 when they sacked the city. Its present condition reflects the French Colonial Governments Ecole Francais d'Etreme Orient restoration in early 1900. Until then its summit remained destroyed after Haw armies destroyed it looking for gold.
  • The central Stupa stands on a traditional Mandala mount around which are diminishing terraces each accessed by stairways.
