Wat Si Muang Vientiane

Wat Si Muang is one of the most popular sites of worship in Vientiane, which is considered the home of the guardian spirit of Vientiane. The temple offers a fascinating insight into how old animist beliefs have blended seamlessly with Theravada Buddhism. The temple is known for giving luck and fortune, and many people come from near and far to pray and receive blessings from the monks. Vendors around the gate sell flowers, incense, candles and caged birds (to be released so the do-gooder receives merit).
