Wat Nong Sikhunmeuang, Luang Prabang, Laos


This is photo of Wat Nong Sikhunmeuang temple, in Luang Prabang (or Louangphrabang), Laos. There are more than 30 temples in the relatively small town of Luang Prabang (also notable as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Wat Nong Sikhunmeuang is not the most famous of them (compared to Wat Xieng Thong or Wat Mai) but has a large and richly decorated sim, with fish and naga brackets supporting the roof from red and gold filigree pilasters. The plaster nagas guarding each stairway are a little more detailed than those at other temples around town.
