Thankful this was a stop on our tour as our guide shared much about the history of the temple within and our walk around the site led to deeper understanding of the significance of the art, representations of the king and how they are rather...More
The Wat Phra Pathom Chedi is an ancient temple with lots happening.
You will notice that it has a large pagoda, the largest that I have seen. You will also find a large Buddha image there as well.
Parking there is quite easy as there...More
The Thais will tell you that it is the biggest chedi in Asia and they are probably right!
it's been renovated now and still very nice. Perhaps better in the evening when the heat is not that high. I love the frangipani trees around.
Biggest does not mean better.
It’s a nice big stupa with loads to see in the surroundings, the monks, their grounds, the reclining Buddha and other Buddha little temples in the grounds for worshipping. The big stupa itself is impressive and you can walk around...More

A bit hard to get here on your own, since the public transportation in Thailand is somewhat not so friendly.
But the temple itself is beautiful with the big stupa in the middle.
Also, you could join the Buddhist practice inside too.
This is by far the largest Buddhist construction in Thailand and is the tallest in the world. It is centrally located in Nakhon Pathom Thailand and well worth the trip from Bangkok (take Microbus to end of line, then take river or motorcycle taxi)
