Sikhottabong Stupa and Ancient City (ພະທາດສີໂຄດຕະບອງ)

The Sikhottabong Stupa and Ancient City site, on the east bank of the Mekong south of Thakhek, is the most important cultural and religious site in south central Laos. The history of the 16th century / 500 year old stupa is linked across the Mekong river with cultural sites in Thailand. The Ancient City – remains that you can see of even older buildings – is important in the cultural background of the area. The region’s main event is the Sikhottabong festival in February, when crowds make a pilgrimage to the Stupa from all over Laos.
