Wat Ho Prakeo

(0 review) • ₭

Wat Ho Phra Kaew, also written as Ho Prakeo is a former temple in Vientiane, is located on Setthathirath Road, to the southeast of Wat Si Saket. It was first built in 1565 to house the Emerald Buddha, but has been rebuilt several times.

Haw Phra Kaew is now used as a museum where some of the best examples of Laos religious art is displayed. A number of Buddhas are placed on the terrace, including stone Buddhas dating from the 6th to 9th century, and bronze standing and seated Buddha of later periods.

Ho Prakeo is a must-see attraction for anyone interested in the history and culture of Laos.
