Information

Si Saket was constructed in 1818 under King Anuvong. It was the King’s own temple. From 1955-1965 new governments went to the temple before being nominated. In 1972 the temple was made into a museum. After 1975 Laos became a People’s Democratic Republic and the official ceremonies in the temple were discontinued. At first all important Buddhist objects were collected at Si Saket and later some of them were taken to Ho Phra Keo, because Si Saket had not enough space. Si Saket has most of the objects of the Later Lan San period while Ho Phra Keo has most from the Middle Lan San period. The difference in the periods can be seen in the style of the Buddha images, especially with respect to the nose, the ears, the pabian and the head.
