Prap Ho Monument  The cremated bones of those who lost their lives in the suppression of the Ho in 1886 have been contained inside the monument to honour the good deeds of those who sacrificed their own lives for the nation. There are inscriptions in Chinese, English, Laotian and Thai on all four directions of the monument.


Wat Pho Chai  Luangpho Phra Sai, a sacred Buddha image of the town which is respected by the people of Nong Khai, is housed here.

Phrathat Nong Khai or Phrathat Klang Nam   is a broken pagoda in the middle of the Mekong River. According to the legend of Urangkhathat ( Phrathat Phanom ), nine pieces of the Lord Buddha’s foot relics were kept here. It was presumed that the pagoda was built in around the 15th – 17th Century.


Sala Kaeo Ku or Wat Khaek  This place which looks like an open museum of religious statues was created with an inspiration of Luangpu Bunluea Surirat who built it around 1978, out of his own belief that the teachings of all regions could be mixed together. Therefore, there are Buddha images in different attitudes.

Mueang Nong Khai of Thailand and Tha Duea of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic. It was

Sattamahasathan or the seven important places in the history of the Lord Buddha after his

enlightenment, and Sa Pappharanak or Sa Phaya Nak (pond of the Naga serpent) where in the

past the water was taken to bathe a newly appointed ruler of the town as an auspicious gesture.


Luangpho Phrachao Ong Tue  This is a large, cast bronze, Buddha image. It is housed in Wat Si Chomphu Ong Tue, Ban Nam Mong. The royal artisans of the northern city and Lan Chang constructed the image over seven years and seven months.
