Wat Si Saket was built in 1818 on the orders of King Anouvong. It was built in the Siamese style of Buddhist architecture, with a surrounding terrace and an ornate five-tiered roof, rather than in the Lao style, keeping it safe from the armies of Siam which sacked Vientiane in 1827.
Wat Si Saket features a cloister wall with more than 2000 ceramic and silver Buddha images. The wat also houses a museum.
