City Pillar - Chinese Temple
Aug 2017 • Solo
This is colourful place of worship for the Trat local community. Offers are made to the different devines as well as oracles are made for demands of all kind to question good luck. A lively place to visit and observe the activities.

Amazing Confusion of Colour and Design
Apr 2016 • Friends
Most towns and cities in Thailand have a city pillar. The pillars vary in height, size and the elaborateness of their design, but they all embody the spirit of the community, or the local ethos.

City Pillar Shrines are therefore a focus of the community and people come to the shrines to pay their respects, to pray for good fortune, and to seek merit.

Trat City Pillar Shrine is one of the most elaborate and colourful I have seen in my travels in Thailand.

It is of heavy Chinese influence, as are most of those that I have seen. I suspect that this is partly because they are financed by the more affluent Chinese-Thai community, which has the money to build and decorate these shrines as they see fit.

Trat City Pillar Shrine consists of two main temples, plus courtyards and other minor buildings.

Not really much
Feb 2016
Look to be honest I didn't find much to see in Trat but perhaps this is the best thing to see.
Really I found some cute places to eat at what is essentially a stop off before departing to islands or as partner boarder crossing
Nothing to see here

Nice place
Jul 2015
The city pillar is a Chinese temple very near from Pop Guesthouse.
It is a small complex of very ornamented temples, in very good condition.
The pillar dates back to the time of King Taksin (18th)with the purpose of protecting the city and providing a symbol for peace between the Thai and Chinese people.
No entrance fee, worth a visit!!

Very ornate
Apr 2015 • Solo
I stumble upon it by chance and am glad I did. To me the showpiece of Trat. The ornate carvings and the amount of bright colours makes it a quite impressive sight. Inside there are some interesting paintings on the wall and a shrine. No visit to Trat would be complete without visiting here.
