Pha That Luang - the "Great Sacred Stupa", was built by the revered King Setthatirat in the mid-16th century when he moved the capital of Lane-Xang from Luang Prabang to Vientiane. Wat Pha Keo housed the “Holy Emerald Buddha” until 1797, before the Siamese general Chakri, later King Rama I, brought him to Bangkok, where he is now venerated in Wat Phra Keo as the highest shrine in Thailand. Wat Si Saket (built in 1818) is the oldest temple complex preserved in its original form. There are numerous frescoes and a total of 6,840 Buddha figures in this temple complex.
