I bought this picture from an Asian store in Charlotte over 10 years ago, back then I knew very little about where That Luang was since I am not from that Area.
I can’t tell you what it used to look like, I would think that it looks like this 30 years ago.
That Luang is also known as the Great Stupa and the most significant Laotian religious and national monument. It was built in 1566 and was reconstructed in 1930. I had a chance to go back to visit during Boun That Luang, my first time ever visiting and it’s a very emotional event for me.
