This large monastery, whose sǐm dates back to 1879, runs a training centre which teaches young monks woodcarving, painting, Buddha-casting and other skills necessary to maintain Luang Prabang's temples. Such activities came to a virtual halt after the 1975 revolution and have a fair amount of ground to recover, judging from the unrefined examples sold in their little showroom .
