Wat Sene

Famous standing Buddha

Photo of Wat Sene, , Luang Prabang

What we say: 4 stars

‘Sene' means 100,000 kip in Lao language and that's supposedly what it cost to originally build the temple (this now equates to around US$12).

It remains an active temple and is known for its large standing Buddha image draped with a saffron robe. The image's shelter, main sim and bell tower are beautifully stencilled with red and gold images of mythical animals and incarnations of the Buddha.
