    Phra Pathom Chedi
    4 more images

    The temple where have the biggest and tallest chedi in Thailand. And some said it 's one of the oldest chedi in Thailand. Maybe it 's the one inside.This big chedi built in King Rama IV over an old one ,you can see the ruin inside.And the King ordered to housed the great relic.In the King Rama VI ,he came to reconstruction this temple and settled this temple as the temple of his reign.

    Thai people always come to sacred Pra Roung Rojjana which 's a standing Buddha image housed in a panel of North viharn.King Rama VI found this image just hands and feet and he ordered to cast all new image and housed at this temple.

    I know that inside the gallery ,they collected 77 Buddha images in 77 posts.That 's all posts in Thailand.

    Phra Pathom Chedi (3)

    by dabuwan Updated May 17, 2003
    A crypt in the Phra Pathom Chedi

    On one side of the Phra Pathom Chedi there is a small door; behind the door there is a long, dark, narrow tunnel (I could not stand in it) leading to a small dark crypt with a statue.
    This spot is much worshipped by the pilgrims, but it's difficult to find it.
    As the crypt was so dark, I could not see what I was going to take a picture of. I discovered just later when I had the pic printed.

    The Phra Pathom Chedi is the most sacred buddhist monument in Thailand and there are always many pilgrims visiting.
    On the four sides of the Chedi there are sanctuaries with Buddha statues; the number of worshippers is impressive.
    There is also a chinese temple attached to the walls, on the outside.

    Phra Pathom Chedi (1)

    Phra Pathom Chedi

    This impressive pagoda is 120 mt high and it has a 234 mt long circumference at the base. It is one of the largest (for sure the highest) in the world and it is the holiest buddhist monuments in Thailand.
    The original building is more than 2000 years old and it dates back to the Dvaravati Buddhist period. In the 19th century the original bowl shaped pagoda has been covered by the actual huge orange tiled chedi.
    The Phra Pathom Chedi is centrally located in Nakhon Pathom and it's impossible to miss it.
    Around the Chedi complex there is a lot of space, with some parks, in order to let the crowds of pilgrims easily reach the Pagoda. In the evening there are often some thai art performances in this area, especially during festivals.
