About Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang rose to unmistakable quality as the capital of the main Lao kingdom (Lan Xang - place where there is the million elephants) from 1353 onwards. The city owes its present name to the Pha Bang, a respected Buddha picture (now in the Royal Palace Museum) which was conveyed to the city by King Visoun amid the brilliant time of Lan Xang in the mid 1500s.
The discontinuity of the Lao kingdom toward the end of the sixteenth century saw Luang Prabang turn into a militarily feeble autonomous city state paying tribute to the encompassing kingdoms. At last the 1887 sacking of the city by the Chinese Haw drove the Luang Prabang government to acknowledge the security of the French, whose impact prompted the development of the numerous fine pilgrim manors that sit agreeably nearby the conventional Lao design.
