Wat Sisaket Tours

Built in the 19th century, Wat Sisaket is widely considered to be the oldest temple in Vientiane. Surrounded by tropical fruit trees and picturesque verandas, it's a beautiful structure with a drum tower, flower-patterned ceiling and ornate five-tiered roof. Although the temple has officially been turned into a museum, Wat Sisaket is still a working monastery, and you may find locals praying at various times throughout the day.

Inside the temple, travelers will see thousands of miniature Buddha images and sculptures (made from wood, bronze, ceramic and silver) lining the cloister walls—a unique feature that places the site as a stop on most sightseeing tours. For the best experience, visit Wat Sisaket as part of a half-day or full-day tour of the city, either with transport provided or by bike.

Insider's Tip: Visit Wat Sisaket in the early morning and you’ll find many locals praying and offering alms to the temple’s deities, as well as food to the resident monks.

Practical Info

Wat Sisaket is located on Lan Xang Road, on the corner of Setthathirat Road and opposite the Presidential Palace. Conservative clothing is required to enter the temple.
