Phichit Tourist Attractions:

Wat Nakhon Chum 

    Situated in the northern part of Thailand, the beautiful province of Phichit is also an important religious destination better known for its various sacred Buddhist monasteries. One such important Buddhist monastery that is worth a visit is the Wat Nakhon Chum.

 

      Situated 9 kilometers from the town of Phichit on the Phichit-Wang Chik road in Tambon Muang Kao, Wat Nakhon Chum is an ancient temple that is believed to have been constructed during the early Sukhothai period some 800 years ago.

     The most important structure of this temple is the Ubosot that has been built with brick and mortar. So as to provide proper ventilation inside the temple, a separate arrangement has been made. Instead of keeping windows, narrow openings have been made throughout the walls that allow the passage of to and fro air thereby providing ample ventilation and also an ambient temperature inside. This style is exactly similar to temples that were constructed during the Ayutthaya period. Present inside the Ubosot is a large image of Lord Buddha cast in Sukhothai style. This image is believed to be 800 years old. Also present inside the temple is an old main shrine hall.

     Significance of Wat Nakhon Chum in the history of Phichit province can be gauged by the fact that this temple was once used as a place where oath-taking ceremony pledging allegiance to the monarch used to take place through water drinking. Currently, most parts of the monastery are in a dilapidated state and require repair and renovation.
