nakhon pathom

Another historical site located in Wat Phra Padhone Chedi, Tambon Phra Padhone.  It is located 2 Kms. to the east of Phra Pathom Chedi down Petchakasem Road.  The former shape of Phra Padhone Chedi was an upside down bell like other Chedi that was built in Dvaravati period.  As Wat Phra Padhone Chedi is located in the middle of the ancient city of Nakhon Chaisi thus several artefacts were discovered during excavations.  Some of the discovered items include Buddha images, heads of Buddha images and Buddha images in terra cotta, as well as a bronze figure of a garuda gripping naga under it’s claws, which is the official symbol of King Rama VI.
