That Dum – Vientiane, Laos

That Dum, or Black Stupa, was built as a shrine for the Naga dragons that are believed to protect Vientiane. The Stupa stands thirty feet high and sits in a small park within walking distance of two Vientiane’s most impressive temple complexes; Vat Sisaket and Ho Prakeothe.
