Wat Si Saket is a Buddhist wat situated on Lan Xang Road. Wat Sisaket was built from 1818 to 1824 by King Anouvong, the last king of Lan Xang Kingdom, as his private monastery. It is famous for its cloister wall housing thousands of tiny Buddha images – more than 6800 Buddhas in total and rows with hundreds of seated Buddhas. These images mainly date from the 16th and 19th centuries and come in all sizes and are made from wood, stone and bronze. The grounds contain well-preserved structures and a visit here will give you an excellent overview of Buddhist architecture in Laos.
