Pratat Srikoon, the Tuesday guardian, is believed to grant you honor and charisma. The chedi of Pratat Srikoon is similar in shape to Pratat Panom only smaller and was built with the influence of Lanchang art. Relics of Pra Saributr, Pra Mokalana, and Pra sankajjayana are kept inside the chedi. Popular offerings are popped rice, traditional perfume, charred sticky rice, pink flowers, two candles, and eight incense sticks. The chant for Pratat Srikoon is ‘Ti Hung Ja Tou Ro Ti-nang’ and is considered to bring one affection.
