The Wat Phrayortkeo Temple enters the stream of practice in the Theravada tradition. Wat Phrayortkeo (Lao Buddhist Society of NSW Inc) is a Buddhist centre offering a peaceful refuge and environment for self-awareness. This temple was set up by the Lao community who came to Australia as refugees in early 1976 after the Communists took over Laos. The Lao Community Advancement Co-op and the lay people set up a centre where they can have a temple, a kuti (residence for the monks) and a multi-purpose hall for the community. Once every month, especially during the full moon day, there is a Buddhist ceremony of Alms-giving. It is a time when all Buddhists and non-Buddhists are welcome to take part. If you want a glimpse of our Lao culture, art, customs and traditions, visit our website www.watphrayortkeo.com for all the festivals, Buddhist ceremonies, Lao New Year celebration and food festivals.


Wat Phu Thok

Address:   Nong Khai
Tradition: Theravada
Find on:
Notes and Events:

Phu Thok
Location: Amphoe Bung Kan
Phu Thok means an isolated mountain in Isan dialect. Located in Ban Na Kham Khaen, Tambon Na Sabaeng, this sandstone range stands out and can be seen from a distance. It consists of two hills: Phu Thok Yai and Phu Thok Noi. Previously, this area was dense woods with many wild animals. Because of its tranquility, Phra Achan Chuan Kunlachettho, a meditation master, initially established a meditation place here for Buddhists to practise the Buddha’s teachings.

Phu Thok Noi is where Wat Chetiya Khiri Wihan (Wat Phu Thok) is situated. This temple is the starting point of a walk up to the top of Phu Thok, via a wooden bridge winding around the steep mountain. The bridge was built with faith from monks, novices and villagers. The construction began in 1969 and took five years to complete. This bridge is compared to a path of virtue that leads a righteous man to leave a world and enter into emancipation by their own efforts and determination. Phu Thok is still a meditation practice centre and a place for the community’s religious affairs. Visitors shall be calm in manner and pay respect to the place. The bridge’s stairs to the mountain top are divided into seven sections.

How to get there:
To get there Phu Thok is around 185 km. from the town of Nong Khai. Take Highway 212, past Pho Chai, Pak Khat and Bueng Kan districts. Then, turn left to take Highway 222 and head for Si Wilai district. From Si Wilai, take a left turn and go on for another 30 km., past Ban Na Sing, Ban Sai Ngam, to Ban Na Kham Khaen and Phu Thok.
