Wat Phou: Test your luck on the cliff

The sanctuary is located below the cliff. There is a small walking track you can use to go up. On the cliff there are large images of elephant and Lord Buddha's foot print.

People use the foot print to test their luck by stretching their arms from one edge to another. If you can reach the another edge you are lucky.

Before doing so you need to buy grass for the elephant image. Pray and wish to have luck.

Oy! I am not lucky

Let's me wish first

Oh I am not lucky too.

Grass for you, Holy elephant

I wish I would have luck

Ok. I have luck

Wat Phou: The Sanctuary

There is a long way behind the trees to go to the sanctuary and we need to climb up the hill.
After getting up the hill we can look back how far we have walked from the palaces.

Now we can enjoy the art of Sanctuary's walls and doors

Wat Phou: The King Kammatha

Continuing west, successive staircases lead up further terraces; between them stands a dvarapala which has come to be worshipped as king Kammatha, mythical builder of the temple. On the narrow next terrace are the remains of six small shrines destroyed by treasure-hunters.

People pay worship to The King Kammatha
