Wat Sop, Luang Prabang

Wat Sop, Luang Prabang, Laos
Wat Sop is close to a cluster of other small wats at the northeast end of town, just down the road from Wat Xieng Thong. This wat is the oldest of the bunch, built in the 15th century, although it was rebuilt in 1909. My pictures include the colorful turquoise, green and gold stupa onsite, the large drum chapel, and initiates studying on the grounds and the sim itself.
