Wat Si Muang is one of Vientiane’s most popular sites of worship, and offers a fascinating insight into how old animist beliefs have blended seamlessly with Theravada Buddhism. Devotees not just come from all over Laos, but also from Northeastern Thailand, because this is the only Wat in this region where devotees pray for fulfilment of their love dreams and visions.
