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.
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.
Visit the Phra Pathom Chedi the tallest Buddhist monument in the world (127m), originally erected in the 6th century AD. The original monument is buried within the orange colored dome, which is much younger.
Try a cruise along Tha Jeen river,you 'll enjoy a wonderful scenery of river bank and imagine how old Thai lived together with river. For me,I impressed with Thai traditinal house and nature.
