About travel to Nakhon Pathom
Nakhon Pathom is a small but lively city with around 120,000 permanent residents and located 60 km to the west of Bangkok. The train line running from south to central Thailand loops west before reaching Bangkok, with a stop on route at Nakhon Pathom.
Nakhon Pathom is a city with a long history, thought to have been the location of the first Buddhist temple in Thailand established, according to some accounts, more than 2,000 years old. Nakhon Pathom had virutally disappeared as a settlement since the 11th Cenury following an invasion by the Khmer Empire. This changed when the old temple, Phra Pathorm Chedi, was rediscovered by the future King Rama IV. After ascending to the throne in the middle of the 19th Century, King Rama IV encouraged the repopulation of Nakhon Pathom. King Rama IV also paid for the old chedi to be re-built raising its height to 120 metres.
The other major attraction in Nakhon Pathom is the Sanam Chandra Palace. The Sanam Chandra Palace was built for King Rama VI who enjoyed coming to Nakhon Pathom to visit the Phra Pathom Chedi, but found it making there and back again to Bangkok in a single very tiring. The palace is unusual for its use of European architecture, and is no longer in use as a royal palace. Visitors are welcome and they can enter into living quarters of Kind Rama VI and see how a King of Thailand would have lived in the early 20th Century.
