The chedi is a sight to behold. A temple has a gold reclining Buddha 17 metres long. The area is immaculately clean. About 10 minutes walk from the train station and bus stances. The monks are very friendly. For a 60 Baht entry fee this amazing place is well worth a visit from Bangkok.

Anyone can go to the temples around Dusit. Venturing out here takes some planning and initiative. The Pagoda is large and full of things to photograph and see. And of course no visit out here is complete without going to Sanam Chan Palace just down the road.

Nice and quiet place in the middle of Nakhon Pathom! The temple is just an ordinary temple but the Pagoda is incredibly big! You could see it from a couple kilometres away. The Pagoda is surrounded by Buddha statues and sculptures which imported from China as my assumption. Not too much touristy, in my opinion, since it was the weekend... More

You couldn't miss this for anything. It's the biggest of its kind in Thailand. The pagoda is really beautiful. At night, there are night market and many food stalls. Just make a quick stop on the way to Hua Hin or other attractions....you won't regret it!

Like most temples in Thailand, this temple too is beautiful. The Pagoda looks as if it has been made of Ivory from far, but at close quarters you can see its made of small tiles. Well worth a visit. Also be appropriately dressed as a mark of respect to Buddhism.

This complex is very interesting with quite a lot to see, the bell shaped temple, many statues, gongs, buddhas and even the Jack fruit trees. The way the temple is made out of the small yellow tiles is unusual. Our guide was excellent as he had been a monk for 2 years and explained Buddhism and the role of the... More
