About Travel to Nakhon Si Thammarat
Nakhon Si Thammarat is a fairly large city with a population of over 100,000 permanent residents. What Nakhon Si Thammarat is not, however, is a popular destination for foreign visitors despite having some significant points of interest for those travellers who do make it this far south. Nakhon Si Thammarat is further south than Surat Thani and are there are no direct ferry services from Nakhon Si Thammarat to the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan which makes it less popular as a transit point for travellers from Bangkok than Surat Thani.
Nakhon Si Thammarat is a very old city founded in the 8th Century and then developed into a city at the end of the 13th Century, which included the construction of city walls parts of which are visible today. The main attraction in Nakhon Si Thammarat is Wat Phra Mahathat, which is a fascinating temple dating back to the 3rd Century.
Wat Phra Mahathat played an important part in the spread of Theravada Buddhism in Thailand and holds some important artefacts from the early period of what would became Thailand’s state religion. Wat Phra Mahathat also has a unique architectural feature in the the form of a giant Sri Lankan style chedi surrounded by 173 smaller smaller chedi. This forest of chedi towers was constructed in the 13th Century and during the 8 centuries since nothing similar and to the same scale has been constructed again in Thailand.
