Phra Pathom Chedi, Nakhon Pathom

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The most sacred place in Thailand. It is also the highest Buddhist temple in the world. Hour drive from Bangkok, but you have to go

  •  I stopped by on my way to the Kanchanaburi tourism. Without going into the city comes and goes the great stupa. 4 Buddha stands on both sides of the world-honored one to enter the temple, but this Buddha image, and put the gold bug where their body will be better briefed..... and I also tried put for the time being. Locals eager to visit, I saw. The is a Buddhist country.
