We stopped here while on our way to Hua Hin and it is definitely worth it. The view from the train station was good in itself with the smoke from the market food stalls giving it a ghostly feel. All around are grottoes and Buddha images making it an interesting place. There was a great view from the top of... More

Huge stupa here! I can see it liked 10 miles away! Pretty crowded with Buddhism :) The temple located in a town so it's very easy to get there. Surrounded by local market, we walked around that area and tried to get some food there.

We visited the Chedi during the scheduled stop (40 minutes) of the tourist train that on weekends travels between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi (Bridge on the River Kwai); therefore a bit hastily. 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...

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.
