Vientiane abounds with temples and ancient pagodas, among which Wat That Luang in the northeast of the city is the most famous one. Wat That Luang, located in the east of Wat That Luang Square, 3 kilometers northeast of Vientiane, was built in 1566 and composed of a number of pagodas. The pagodas are 45 meters tall and 54 meters wide. Wat That Luang enjoys great popularity in its unique architectural art and it’s the symbol of Vientiane. It is also one of the important scenic spots and historical sites in Southeast Asia. Wat That Luang Square is the largest square in Vientiane and ranks only second to Tiananmen Square of China. In the temple, there is a copper Buddha for people to make a promise. At present, there are still a number of monks in the temple. In November every year, the grand Wat That Luang temple fair is held there, during which, the monks and clergies from the whole country flock there to hold religious activities, such as worshiping and alms giving.
