Nakhon Pathom Travel Guide

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.
