The young man who inspired the updated thousand year-old temple was was an expert on cock fighting (essentially a gambling sport) and his numerology has caught the imagination of the Thai gamblers - legal with the state lottery or illegal through he different numbers games organised in the country. The donations of hopeful players have contributed to the blatant wealth of the ongoing constructions in this monastery. There must literally be a million plaster chickens on or around the site - as well as a few real ones too.
Well worth spending an hour with endless photo opportunities.

Along the way to the temple, you shall see a lot of chicken statues by the road side donated by devotees. Also in the temple grounds. Devotees come here to pay their respects and wish for good fortune.

Some truths in the western world And the eastern world Different opinions do not match. Credo East Especially Thailand Most people are centered on Buddhism. And has respect for superstitions and sacred things To hope for what he wants Now people who are desperate Thai people Facing each temple Find a place to hold the mind and now Wat Chedi Dam Khai in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province It is another place where Thai people all over the world come to make a wish, which the belief that Will get what you want Not including the Thai people, foreigners, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, all know each other almost every day. They all traveled to Wat Chedi Khai, the informant and personally went beyond the way to worship on August 7, 2020, with a distance of 750 kilometers from Bangkok and takes 10 hours by car, hoping to have luck. Have a better life

A nice temple to visit if you have time, my partner and myself visited the temple on the 27th July 2020 the temple was packed with people and children running around, it was very hard to move around and impossible to be able to pray.

The temple is full of stucco chickens and also fireworks outside, but on the day we were there they were not letting anyone let off the fireworks they had bought.

If you wish to go to the temple it is best to go during the week and not on the weekend, go in the morning before lunch as the crowds get bigger in the afternoon, when we left the temple driving back to the city the roads were jam packed with cars stretching for kilometres trying to get to the temple, there trip would have taken them hours to cover a short distance.

if you are short of time on your visit to the city there are many beautiful temples in the city you can walk to or take a taxi in a few minutes, not hours you will need to drive to Wat Chedi.

I just ride motorbike pass by Nakhon Si Thammarat and heard story about Wat Chedi (Ai Khai). The reason to go there not different than another people.

Many people just come here for make a wish (Like a number) or vindicate.

Not only the people in Nakhon Si Thammarat to come here but all around the country maybe from different country too, that the reason you must come.

Wat Chedi used to be an abandoned temple for more than 1,000 years. It was renovated in 1957 and now a very important site & a sacred temple for worship and festivals. Large amounts of Roosters at the temple and all around for good luck. Worth a visit if in the area.

They boasts that this is the tallest stupa in the world and it is very very big. Magnificent is the word for it. However no photography allowed inside. But you can buy the book as donation for THB500 which has the stories and all the beautiful mural paintings inside as well as the golden Buddha statue etc. Entering this place will take your breathe away hence I decide to buy the book because memories may fail me in future (no photos allowed see). The area surrounding this place is also worth the walk, as well as local market which is just outside this temple.

This is a very special place for Thai people who visit it in their thousands to make a wish. Apparently it is custom, if you have experienced good fortune, to take a colourful plaster chicken and place it amongst the tens of thousands of other chickens of all sizes. Presumably the greater your good fortune, the larger the chicken.
The car parks are large and much building work is taking place and there are all manner of food stalls with a significant number selling lottery tickets which might account for a good many wishes being made.
It's not that easy to find but once you find the turning off the main highway near Sichon, you simple follow the two metre tall chickens that have been places every 100 metres or so along the road side.

Very unusual temple dedicated to a young novice monk who loved roosters, soldiers and super-heroes. Here. the faithful offer everything from bicycles to spiderman figurines. Would be worth gathering some local history before visiting as the experience can be somewhat over the top...
