Head of the Vat Phou World Heritage Office, Mr Oudomsy Keosaksith, spoke to Vientiane Times yesterday during a visit by Deputy Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Mr Savankhone Razmountry and his team to the provincial department. He said the stupa had been found at Nongdinchi temple on Phou Malong mountain in Phonthong district.
