Jom Khao Manilat Temple

When in Huay Xai, Jom Khao Manilat Temple is a must-see. The temple was built in 1880 out of teak and is Shan-style, with spectacular painting in bright colours, like those sacred places in Jakarta. Also, a stele-house, donated by a former Chaing Kong prince in 1458, is located here. Jom Khao Manilat affords a fascinating overlooking view of the town and the Mekong River below, a perfect site especially at sunset. The temple is just a few minutes' walk from the ferry pier.
