Wat Visoun

Luang Prabang, Laos

Dating back to 1513 and the reign of King Wisunarat (Visoun), Wat Wisunarat is LuangPrabang’s oldest temple and was once home to the PrabangBuddhas. The history of the temple is colourful with it being originally crafted from wood before being burned by Black Haw riders in 1887. The Black Haw riders were part of the Black Flag military rebel group led by a Chinese commander at the end of the 1880s.
