Nang Sida – Angkoran ruins beside Wat Phu

No Comments

Mark from the All Points East Travel blog writes about Nang Sida, a ruined temple just walking distance from the more famous, world-heritage listed Wat Phu in Laos.

Nang Sida would probably have been quite an impressive little temple in it’s day but is now in a rather sad state with the totally collapsed main tower now being impressive just for the sheer size of the pile of fallen sandstone blocks: it must have been a pretty tall tower when still standing! The eastern entrance porch, to what would have been the main shrine, is still relatively intact; there’s the remains of an outer enclosure wall and very long causeway but what saves the site for the casual visitor is probably the setting with the wooded hills behind forming a picturesque backdrop.
