Vat Phou or Wat Phu is a ruined Khmer temple complex in southern Laos. It is located at the base of mount Phu Kao (formally known as Mount Lingaparvata) some 6 km from the Mekong river in Champasak province. Though nothing to special to look at, at least compared to the other Angkor temples around Siem Reap, this was once an impressive temple. It made for a nice day trip from Pakse as there is pretty much nothing special to do in that town.
from the entrance looking in. the mountain in the back right was the "linga" mountain. Honestly, the old religious people found everything to look like a penis or boobs. good to know perverts and religion have gone hand and hand for nearly all of time. :)
