Wat Phra That Phanom in Nakhon Phanom

Isan, Temple

Wat Phra That Phanom Chedi วัดพระธาตุพนม is located in Nakhon Phanom นครพนม district in Northeast Thailand.

This is a very sacred temple and many local Thais as well as from Laos would make the trip here to pay respect to the Chedi.

The area is opened till about 7pm at night if I remember correctly. After which, the doors would be closed but you can still pay respect from the outside.

The view at night is spectacular:

During my visit there, we stayed at That Phanom place (address: Moo 10 Chayangkul Road, That Phanom 48110, Thailand) which was within walking distance to the Chedi (it’s probably about 1km).

After we checked into the hotel in the afternoon, we settled down and during evening, the vans took us to the Chedi. As our drivers were tired from the long drive, we opted to walk back and stop in between the roadside stalls to have our dinner.

Next day, we went to back to the temple to visit before leaving for Chiang Mai.
