Patuxay Monument

P.D.R, ວຽງຈັນ, Laos

Monument

Patuxai is a massive war monument and triumphal arch in the center of Vientiane, Laos. It was completed in 1968. It’s also known as the Arc de Triomphe of Vientiane due to its resemblance to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Patuxai, however, is slightly taller than its Parisian counterpart, has four gates rather than two, and is covered in distinctly Laotian designs.
