The Tat Luang Festival takes place annually in November and commemorates the Tat Luang stupa.  Located in Vientiane, the festival brings in thousands from all over the country.  It's one of Laos' most iconic images and it's even been utilized on some of the government's seals and the currency.

Note:  Sometimes spelled as that it's actually pronounced tat which is the Lao word for stupa.
