Uncover gold-covered Pha That Luang – A symbol of Buddhism
Discover one of the world’s 10 most famous Buddhist temples during your adventure in Laos with Crystal Holiday Travels.
The splendid That Luong is a must-see attraction in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. The tower pagoda architecture symbolizes Lao culture and identity as it is the national emblem, as it is even printed on banknotes.
The complex around Pha That Luang is enveloped in a cloister 85 meters long, which houses various statues and paintings of Buddha.
The main stupa is designed in a pyramid shape which is approximately 69 m long and 45 m high. It has been decorated with 500 kg of gold leaf, which makes the shining structure a stunningly precious view.
If you are traveling here in October and November, check if the annual That Luang Festival is scheduled during your visit. Held on the full moon of the 12th lunar month, this is one of the most important Buddhist ceremonies and celebrations in the region, attracting thousands of people from all over the world. Enjoy the joyful spirit with parades, traditional music shows, carnival rides, religious ceremonies, and fireworks on display over 3 days.
