Timeless Vat Xieng Tong

Visited arguably one of LP's most famous temples, Vat Xieng Tong. And yes it lives up to the hipe! It's gorgeous. One of the buildings on the temple grounds houses old Buddhas, the golden chariot and 2 large urn-like structures, and carved ancient looking wood panels and frames. On top of all that, its walls are filled with scenes from a story and all made of colored glass pieces formed together into a mosaic.
