Wat Mai

Luang Prabang, Laos

Centrally located on Sisavangvong Road and an important site during the annual Pimai Lao festival, Wat Mai is one of the city’s most photographed temples. Wat Mai once housed LuangPrabang’s most valuable artifact, the Phra Bang: an 83-centimetre tall, 50-kilogram, mostly golden Buddha statue. In 1947 it was most likely shifted to the Royal Palace Museum in Bangkok.
