Hor Phakeo Museum in Vientiane, Laos
Hor Phakeo Museum in Vientiane, Laos

Originally, this ancient temple was built in 1565 by King Sayasetthathirath to house the Emerald Buddha 1565-1779 (lots to the Siamese in 1828) as his personal place of worship. It was later reconstructed in 1936. For this reason and unlike other temples in Laos, monks have not taken up residence here.
During the 1970’s the temple was converted from a place of worship into a museum and now houses the finest national collection of Buddhist sculptures and artifacts. From the terrace of Hor Pra Keo, one can enjoy a view overlooking the President’s Palace (former Royal Palace) and gardens.
