The golden Stupa That Luang in Vientiane is the biggest and most magnificent in all of Laos.
It was first built in 1566, was destroyed in the 1828-1829 sack of Vientiane, and rebuilt in the 1930s.
It is said to contain a hair from the Buddha.
The best time to see it is during sunset, with the sun’s rays causing the stupa to glow like like a magnificent golden orb.
