I'm not very sure about the history of this temple; however, this temple is one of the most important temples in Thailand. It is located in Nakhon Phatom province so it takes about 1 and a half hour to drive there from the outskirt of Bangkok. It is recommended that you should have a car or have to take taxi... More

Originally it was not included in our plan, but driver recommended to drop-by on the way to Thai Village. Huge Stupa with beautiful plants/flowers. The wall of the temple is widely open at one-side facing the Stupa, and people is praying to the Buddha embedded in the Stupa. Beautiful view.

We visited on Sunday. The temple was not crowded. It was free to visit. We walked inside and around the stupa. The stupa was beautiful. We spent about one hour there.

Visited at almost 6pm which is quite late, but actually is more beautiful and less crowded, still peaceful.

A highlight in Nakhon Pathom is to see this grand golden Buddhist stupa. Lined around with Buddha images and several places to pay respects. It is one of the founding Buddhist sites in Thailand. Quite amazing, but on a hot day it can be exhausting to walk around in the heat! A highlight was going into the cave, nothing special... More

It was February morning very calm and with nice weather. For me Chedy is not only historical places but spiritual as well (even I am not he Buddhist). To fell that you have to devote your self completely. This is the place you can do that. There was no tourists ( like in Bangkok), and we spent more than two... More

After having seen so many pagodas, they all start to look the same, and it is hard to remember the differences. This one is different in that it is one of the tallest Buddhist stupas in the world. That alone makes it easy to remember. We came here after our trip to the floating market, and it was worth the... More

Worth the visit during the night time. The pagoda light up with awesome view. The temple is also good for praying. The location is a must visit after Kanchanaburi. The place is about 1hr away.
