But the time was enough for appreciating this imposing monument. We had already read our guidebook on the history and characteristics of the chedi: then about it as witness... More

I have been 3 times now. It's a nice place and the chedi is very very big! The place is rich on history and it has a lot of photo ops along the way around. Also some markets close by to get good local food.

This is really a historical place in nakhonpatom... it has a really deep history and it is really fun for people who are curious about cultures and histories... it has four gates to enter and one of the gates is used by the royal family of Thailand... the entrance is free, yet you require minimum 2 hours to really see...

If you take a weekend special tourist train from Bangkok to kanchanaburi or to the south, probably it takes a brief stop in nakhonpathom. A few minutes walk get you to this lovely temple with a huge chedi tower. Buy some souvenirs and food. I bought a deep fried insect for 10baht that thai people eat as snack. I could... More

it's an amazing temple with the huge stupa, but what i'm really surprise was the fact that there's monks still in this temple. We arrived before noon and we saw a lot of monks studying in groups inside the temple, just amazing.

We visited here whilst staying at the Hidden Holiday House. No other tourists, just local people visiting. Very impressive, particularly the small temple with wall paintings of the Chedi being built and in different eras.
