Nakhon Pathom

Reputed to be Thailand's oldest city (it's thought to date from 150 BC), Nakhon Pathom was once the center of the Dvaravati kingdom, an affiliation of Mon city-states between the 6th and the 11th centuries. The region's first center of Buddhist learning, established about a millennium ago, it's home to the Buddhist monument Phra Pathom Chedi.
