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!

This is the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia,it is one temple built on top of another and it is beautiful,the old temple is inside but you can't see it .The outside temple is made of little tiles and is bell shaped.It has an open court yard around it that you can walk around.

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

Thanks to members positive comments I went to this place and I did not regret it. I liked it all; this place loaded with history, the quiteness, no tourists and so close to Bangkok. It is indeed another world! I loved the mural paintings inside the Stupa, a book is for sale at 500bht which I bought. Do not miss... More

A short ride from Bangkok is Nakhom Pathom. The tallest Buddhist structure in Thailand is housed here, built around 1850s. This is where it is said that Thai Buddhism started and Thai people born in this city consider themselves blessed and proud to have begun their life here. This is an awesome reverent place and very well worth a visit.... More

Absolutely stunning temple and Chedi which dominates the Nakhon Pathom skyline. I love the diversity of the Thai temples and this is another variation on the many different temples I have visited in Thailand. This is well worth a visit and 2-3 hours would need to put aside to enjoy this beautiful Chedi. I love the grounds of temples such... More
