Vientane - Great Stupa

Vientane, Laos. The gold paint doesn't show as much wear and tear from a distance. The great stupa is the symbol of Laos -- it's the totem for the city of Vientane. Stupas are originally meant to house holy relics, usually an article of clothing or piece of remains from the Boddhistava or other holy persons.
