Wat Sisaket (Wat Sisaketsata Sahatsaham), Vientiane's oldest Buddhist monastery, was built by King Chao Anouvong in 1818. Siamese did not destroyed it when they invaded the city in 1828. That is partly because it was built according to the Bangkok-style of architecture. The attractiveness of Wat Si Saket, apart from its age, is its cloister, with niches for tiny Buddha statues, as well as the row of about three hundred seated Buddhas. The inner sanctuary contains a large number of Buddha statues dating back to the 16th to 19th centuries.
