Stupa sights in Nong Khai Province
- Sort by:
The 'Holy Reliquary in the Middle of the River' (sometimes called Phra That Nong Khai) is a ruined Lao-style chedi submerged in the middle of the Mekong and can only be seen in the dry season when the waters lower about 13m. The chedi was gobbled up by the meandering Mekong in the middle of the 18th century and it toppled over in 1847. When the waters drop low enough coloured flags are fastened to it. Phra That La Nong, a replica erected on land, glows brightly at night.
