Travel to Laos: Luang Prabang Palace Grounds
Fronting the river is the old Royal Palace--not so old, really: it was built 1904-09. Now it's a museum, with the palace furnishings approximately intact.
From the main gate.
Off to the right at the gate lies a temple. From this angle, it looks timeless.
It's new, however, and the blue awning provides shelter for a painter at work on the bannister dragons.
The master's touch.
Columns awaiting gold.
Off at the south side of the palace grounds, a shelter protecting some immense royal canoes.
