Located on one of the main street on Sakkarin Road, Old Quarter, Luang Prabang is the Wat Sensoukaram which does not require an admission fee. It dates back to 1718 and features beautiful ruby walls. Many tourists claim that it resembles Wat Maysouvanhnaphoumaram, but it’s worth visiting the Wat Sensoukharam. The same gold and black scheme of colors presides over majority of the temple, and pairs well with blue skies. Wat Sensoukharam is also popular as Wat Sen.
The temple had been originally built with 100.000 stones from River Mekong, for this, its name in Laotian culture means the “Temple of 100.000 treasures”. This whole temple had been restored back in 1957. If one is walking from Mount Phu Si along the Sakkarin Road towards Wat Xieng Thong one is bound to pass Wat Sen. Wat Sensoukaram’s glorious red walls have earned a repuation as one of the most impressive temples of the city. It is a popular place for tourists to take part and watch Tak Bat.
