Why Wat Dongpalan is special ?

Wat Dongpalan located at Thanon Dongpalan, Just beyond the Evening Market, Vientiane, Laos.


Sculpture and decoration around this neighborhood temple lift spirits with their exuberance. Elaborately crowned moon faces top outside walls, which are brightly painted and decorated with kinnarys (angels), elephants and hunters. Several times a year, when special offerings are made at temples, sticky rice is placed in the mouth of each moon. Massive Buddhas and giant figures stand in the courtyard. The naga dragons at the spout of the hanglin, the carrier for scented water, are chased by crocodiles. In contrast the sim (temple hall) and monks' quarters are simple buildings.

What to explore at Wat Dongpalan?

It's nice to see gigantic statue of Buddha in this temple . It's not a big temple to visit but you can enjoy the colorful style of the temple .

It's great to stop by and take some photos. There are stray dogs outside the doors of the temple.

You can see the Wat Dongpalan temple while doing the Walking City Tour.
