New Paying House at Wat Sisaket

Wat Sisaket - is the only temple in Vientiane that survived the sacking of the city by the Siamese in 1828, and is the oldest and one of the most interesting in the country. In the interior of Ho Trai, the main hall and inset into the walls of the surrounding courtyard are hundreds of little niches and shelves containing a total of 6,840 Buddha images and Buddhist inscriptions of the 18th century.

As I found so many pictures from the main temple in the forum I would like to upload for you the praying house which was just built five years ago just on the right of the main temple.
