Built in the 18th century, Wat Long Khoun lies almost directly opposite to Wat Xieng Thong across the river and was recently restored by workmen careful to use traditional techniques and materials. Wat Long Khoun is known as the ‘Monastery of the Happy’; has long and historically significant connections to the Luang Prabang royal family. The older part contains murals which still retain some of their original vibrancy telling the story of the 547 lives of Lord Buddha. The murals also feature local myths and legends incorporating Buddhist morals of kindness and the importance of giving.
