Photographer's Note

The Wat Mai was the original home of the Buddhist leader, Phra Sangkharath, and is a standard of the Luang Prabang style of religious architecture. The building was inaugurated in 1788 after taking 70 years to construct. Golden gilded relief panels covering the front facade tell the story of the highest incarnation of the Buddha The relief panels look like a monolithic wall of gold.

The roof of the veranda is supported by black columns stenciled in gold. The black of the columns contrast brilliantly against the gold wall
