Wat Si Boun Heuang

The temple is in essence a sacred place where everybody must respect the rules. In Laos, pagodas are almost social areas where bonzes, elders, children at play, and pious people mix .

This temple is especially active at mid-day : the young people from the neighbourhood come to play their favourite sport : the Kah Toh, which is a ball game almost like volleyball, but where you only use your feet. The bonzes join in sometimes, but mainly watch with amusement …

This temple has not been renovated. It shelters a pagoda in a worn state, but which is still enchanting. The ceiling is remarkable for its traditional stencilling, as well as its numerous illustrations of Buddha shown in the vihan
