Lao War Memorial
Lonely Planet review for Lao War Memorial
Just south of the town Phonsavan, is Lao War Memorial, a major war memorial in the shape of Lao-style stupas. The hill-top with this Memorial affords sweeping views of Phonsavan. Built in 1998, the monument is inscribed with the slogan ‘The nation remembers your sacrifice’. Large, polished granite slabs standing nearby bear the inscribed names of PL soldiers who died in the area. The stupa-like monument allegedly contains the bones of 4500 who died during the war.
