There are more than 6800 Buddhas in all. If visiting the temple early in the morning, visitors will come across the many locals that go to pray and make merit as well as to offer food to the monks. Wat Sisaket is famous for the interior walls of the cloister and also for its architecture and history. The temple was built by the last king of the Lang Xang Kingdom, Chao Anuvong and managed to survive the Siamese-Lao war of 1828 and has become the oldest Buddhist monastery in Laos.
