Danta is located in the hotel area. There are many restaurants in the surrounding area. All kinds of delicacies. Vientiane is very small and just walk over and take a look. It is also called the Black Tower. The photos taken with the beautiful green plants around are still beautiful
We walked in Vientiane for sight seeing and walked pass this steady ancient looked Black Stupa / That Dam in the middle of a roundabout near the morning market (Talad Sao in Laotian language). It looks alone, dark, old like it has been abandoned and has not been renovated for so long. When I came back home, I read about it and understand that That Dam was built a long time ago that no one remembers exactly when. Like in many countries, each structure often has some fastinating legends connecting to it. People said the stupa was used to be home of the seven headed snake called Naga who protected the whole town from invaders. Another legend says the stupa was covered by gold and invaders took away all, left the stupa in this condition, and local people don’t re-decorate the stupa anymore to remind them about this sad period in history. Walking pass the stupa in the late afternoon in the sunset light is very pleasant even though I did not know about its history back then.
