The stunning Vat Phou Temple of Lord #Shiva Tells Secrets of Laos' Past.
Laos is a country that we know little about, it is only in recent years that the nation has opened to the outside world. But the country has many important archaeological sites
One of the most significant and important is Vat Phou, the ruins of a Khmer Hindu temple complex which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site
Based on archaeological evidence there was a temple on the site, which is on a mountain, since the 5 thcentury AD
At this time, the region came under the cultural and religious influence of India. Vat Phou was associated with the Chenla or #Champa kingdom . The temple was not far from the important city of #Shrestapura, which is now a ruin.
