About Nakhon Si Thammarat City

Nakhon Si Thammarat is a medium sized city with around 100,000 permanent residents. Unlike other major cities in the south of Thailand, such as Surat Thani and Hat Yai, Nakhon Si Thammarat is a very old town which has been a major settlement for more than a 1,000 years and as a consequence has some important historical building.

Although largely undiscovered by foreign visitors, Nakhon Si Thammarat is an interesting destination particularly for visitors with an interest in South East Asian culture and history.

Wat Phra Mahathat

Nakhon Si Thammarat’s major tourist attraction is Wat Phra Mahathat. Wat Phra Mahathat is a Buddhist temple believed to have been established in the 3rd Century. Wat Phra Mahathat underwent a major expansion in the 13th Century when it became the first major Buddhist temple to follow the Theravada sect of Buddhism. Belief in Theravada Buddhism spread across the rest of the country and later became the state religion of Thailand.

What Phra Mahathat is, however, best known for its 78 metre tall Sri Lankan style chedi tower, which is surrounded by 173 smaller chedi towers, also painted in white. This arrangement of large and small chedis is as unique as it is visually stunning. There is no other temple in Thailand similar to Wat Phra Mahathat in this respect, and it is reminiscent of some of the major temples in Myanmar such as Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay.
