Religious Art

About twenty Wats are scattered all over Luang Prabang, which makes this town one of the most important places for Buddhism in S.E. Asia. Art has been developed here since the XIVth century, under respectively Burmese, Siamese, Khmer, or Chinese influence. Even though, Luang Prabang has developed its own sense of architecture and art, which manages to resist the inflow of Hinduism and Buddhism.
