XIENG KHOUANG

 

Xieng Khouang, once devastated by American bombings between 1964 and 1973, has now been known more to tourists by its charming and tranquil beauty. Xieng Khouang is more impressive with “The Plain of Jars”- an archaeological site where hundreds of large stone jars are scattered all over the plateau. These huge jars are supposedly over 2,000 years old. but most of archeologists still question their purpose. Theories range from the view that they were made to store wine for a huge party to celebrate the conquest of Pakhanh City (Xieng Khouang). Other archeologists believe they were made to store dead human bodies, as was the practice of ancient believers. No one really knows.
