"Wat Chedi Luang" Wat Chedi Luang - Buddhist Temple Tip by tim07

 
 

The temple compound is dominated by the huge ruined chedi, which is the tallest structure in the old town. The chedi dates back to 1441 & was once 90m high. It is rumoured to have been damaged by an earthquake or cannon fire.

The chedi is not open to the public but there are many other buildings in the compound that you can go inside. There are monks to be seen in the grounds, it's possible for visitors to sit & have a chat with some of them.

Address: Phra Pokklao Road
Directions: In the centre of the old town.
