Wat Phra That Nong Bua (วัดพระธาตุหนองบัว) in Ubon Ratchathani has a 56 meter high Bodhgaya-style pagoda with a square base. It was originally built in 1956 to celebrate 2,500 years of Buddhism but has been enlarged since. The gleaming gold and white chedi resembles the Mahabodhi stupa in Bodhgaya in India. The gold chedi inside the building contains relics of the Lord Buddha.

The temple complex was impressive before, but the colorful giant naga snakes that now stand at the entrance makes this a must-see highlight for anyone visiting Ubon city. I also suggest visiting this temple in the run-up to the Candle Festival in July as you can observe artisans making the giant wax sculptures for the parade.

Our Lady of the Seven Martyrs of Thailand Shrine, known locally as Wat Ban Song Khon, is the largest Catholic church in Thailand. The shrine was constructed in honour of the seven Christian martyrs in Mukdahan who sacrificed their lives to protect their religion.

This was at a time when Thailand had expelled foreign missionaries from this area because it wanted the local population to convert to Buddhism. But the local Christians refused. Seven of them were shot dead by Thai officials in December 1940.

They have since been recognized by Pope John Paul II as Martyrs.

I love visiting religious places for tourism. This one has an interesting history, although it is not aesthetically attractive.

Interesting history. Separatism has always been a fear of the central, read Bangkok, government. As this was in Issaan, an ethnic Lao zone, a plateau of potential subversives, this must have scared Pibul, & his nation building policy to the core.

thanks for let us discover this story.

Facts of life, persecution is a badge of honour for truth and legitimate teachings. Without it, I’d be suspicious 🤨!

Amazing, I didn't know about this church or the history. Thanks for sharing.

In my little area there is 2 Christian churches but never seen it opened ,maybe both abandoned.

Religions = source of so many deaths and wars.

But those who start making a treatise on the existence of God (whatever it may be) from a post that marks a monument of historical interest, really have serious mental problems.

Hi Richard, nice to see your interesting subjects again.

Thanks for sharing. Did not know this story. Another interesting snapshot of Thai history.

Central Issan is underrated

My godness! A crusade against Rock Choppers

Wow! Didn't know Thais also did that samurai s**t with Christians too.

Missionaries trying to push their will onto others.

Flott sted! Anbefales!

Giant Seated Buddha at Wat Phra Bat Phu Pan Kham (วัดพระบาทภูพานคำ) in Ubolratana District, Khon Kaen. In the high shot you can just see Ubolratana dam in the distance.

At Ban Nang Talung Suchart in Nakhon Si Thammarat, you can learn about the ancient craft of shadow puppetry. Here you can watch them carving and decorating shadow puppets from cow hide. You can also watch a shadow puppet show. On the premises there’s a museum that displays shadow puppets from around the world. Map: goo.gl/maps/n4YJrxpKcCN2 #Thailand ... See MoreSee Less

They make nice wall hangings. We bought this leather one in Kata, Phuket about 16 years ago. The guy said it was made from water buffalo skin.

Phuket has been reopened for international tourists without quarantine since July 1st!

I met first Phuket Sandbox tourists at Patong Beach and asked about their impressions after arrival.

What kind of requirements should you meet and what should you expect here?
