Pha That Luang - the “Great, Holy Stupa” was built by the still highly revered King Setthatirat in the mid-16th century when he moved the capital of Lane-Xang from Luang Prabang to Vientiane. The king, whose monument stands in front of the sanctuary - a symbol of the religion and sovereignty of Laos - had it built on the spot where, according to legend, it was already in the 3rd century. v. Ch. a stupa with a breastbone of Buddha stood. 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.
