Landmark Tourist Spot
Visit the largest pagoda in Thailand at Phra Pathom Chedi, a temple first established in the 6th century that now houses historical relics and the remains of renowned Thai figures. When you go, look for the image of Buddha bestowing pardon. King Rama VI's relics are kept at the bottom of this statue. The attraction's stupa, a mound-like structure used for meditation, is the tallest in the world. If you get hungry, look for food stalls that line the street leading to the attraction. Plan to see Phra Pathom Chedi and other attractions that appeal to you using our Nakhon Pathom vacation generator.
