Chompet Stone Sculpture Village and Temple Complex
Chompet Stone Sculpture Village and Temple Complex is an off-the-beaten-path destination where tourists can see firsthand the stunning, traditional Lao architecture and experience the classic Pakse culture and lifestyle.
Unlike other attractions in Pakse, Chompet Stone Sculpture Village and Temple Complex is a peaceful, almost-devoid-of-tourist destination that is perfect for relaxation and meditation. The village is riddled with several interesting sculptures that represent Lao culture and belief — the most famous of all the sculptures is the Stone Buddha often visited by the local Buddhists. The village has a passageway that leads to the Mekong River where guests can end their visit to the complex by chilling near the riverbanks or enjoying a nice dip in the cool river.
Chompet Stone Sculpture Village and Temple Complex is located at Chompet, Laos, 25 kilometres from Pakse.
