  • All in all, I will mention this temple as the number one in Isan: is it true that in addition to the Laotian flame soaring into the sky with its gilt tooling has no other holy places that you impose architecturally, but it must be considered that the various squares and outline of the temple is a place of worship events in Thailand probably feel. Big parking lot, artificial lakes whose edges are sold fish, frogs, eels to be released later in the ponds, according to a local custom. Entrance quite grandiose, a beautiful temple on the left and jumped in a mezzanine from which you come to the temple precincts with the highest "Laotian flame" in Thailand. This flame, white with gold-like decorations and beautiful luminous pedestal, is surrounded by a stone path with grass on the sides; at the time of our visit the processions followed one another offering expressions of worship really heard. Monks and faithful, loyal and monks, whether a long yellow sheet with handwritten messages above deifedeli. Outside of the fence so many minor constructions but to see and placed in gardens. Half-day mandatory spending in the enchantment of Isan.

  • Wat Phra That Phanom is one of the most sacred and beautiful temple sites in Northeastern Thailand. First structures of the That are believed to be built 900 A.D. - however around 1614 A.D. the site was surrounded by a wall and restructured. Wat Phra That Phanom is located in the center of the small city That Phanom directly beside the banks of the river Mae Nam Khong. At the basis of the That one can see scenes out of buddihist and hinduist mythology. A MUST SEE in the beautiful Isaan region.
  • Important temple in Nakhon Phanom. Phra That Phanom chedi contains The Buddha's breast bone, one of the most important Theravada Buddhist.
  • Beatifull temple.
  • Stunning Temple. Surrounding gardens are lovely - just try not to engage the fish food sellers. They can be very pushy.
