Incredibly elaborate carvings make Wat Mai one of Laos’ most famous temples. A gold-gilded bas relief decorates the five-tiered roof, portraying the life of the Buddha. Wat Mai is the largest wat in Luang Prubang, a World Heritage site known for the array of historical, cultural, and religious locations and events it has to offer.
