Wat Inpeng Temple in Vientiane, Laos

Wat inpeng Pagoda is a historical landmark of art and culture. It is located north of Wat Ongtue Temple. There are many historical elements of interest to those studying Lao art and culture including rock sculptures, Buddha images and rock columns depicting Mon and Khmer cultures. Despite the fact that many of its original items have been removed from the temple, the pagoda still corresponds to the King of Gods.

It was once said that during construction, He transformed himself into an old wise man to assist the builders. The legend also holds that He further transformed himself into an old white monk to help cast the Buddha image. From then on, the temple was known as Wat Inpeng, which means’ to transform.
