This is the most important landmark of Nakhon sri thammaraj. The pagoda was built before 3th century. There is small museum beside the pagoda. If you have time, it's good to visit.

I visited this Wat - now a world heritage site - several years ago but the impression is still very much alive, along w/that of the city of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which I remember being a breezy & sunny place blessed with lots of friendly smiles. The view of white to greyish stupas which surround the main highest one would... More

Despite arriving for a visit as the heavens opened I was so pleased to have made the 150kms journey. I know little about Buddhism so was lucky to have a local person who can converse ( a bit) in English to show me around. It would be nice to have been able to join a tour or even picked up... More

This is a lovely, older temple, with a great deal of history attached to it. Its huge chedi towers over the surrounding city, and is the highlight feature of the temple. There are some interesting musuems attached to the temple complex that are also worth viewing.
