      It was built to commemorate the mutual cooperation and respect that existed between King Maha Chakkraphat of Ayutthaya Kingdom and King Say Setthathirath of Lan Xang dynasties. Built off the Thai-Laos border, this exquisite structure is situated 83 kilometers from Amphoe Mueang in the province of Loei.

          Located on top of a hill, Phra That Si Song Rak is approximately 20 meters tall. The most interesting feature of this temple is its plastered brick pagoda that houses holy relics of Lord Buddha. Present around the pagoda is a 12 cornered indented square-shaped base that is 11 meters high and 9 meters wide on each side. This provides the temple with a cubical lotus appearance that is reminiscent of Phra That Phanom located in Nakhon Phanom province. Importance of this temple in Thai history can be judged by the fact that Loei province uses the image of stupa in its provincial seal. More..
