Luang Prabang = The Patterns Of Wat Sene

The Wat Sene Souk Haram (from the Sanskrit Sukharam) also known as the temple of 100,000 treasures, is one of many beautiful temples in Luang Prabang.

Its facade and doors are heavily gilded and every inch of space on its walls, columns and even under its roof is covered with stenciled patterns. The secondary structures in the complex, like the drum tower and subsidiary shrines are just as beautifully embellished.The Sim with its swooping roof - Wat Sene Souk HaramThe Sim with its swooping roof and gilded facade.The drum tower - Wat Sene Souk Haram
