Attraction Details :

Phra That Kong KhaoNoi is an ancient stupa or Chedi, a structure that enshrines holy Buddhist relics. Built during the 18th-20th centuryin the late Ayutthaya period, the small, square brick pagoda has a distinctive spire. The middle part of the structure is ornamented with decorative doors on all four sides. A brick wall surrounds the pagoda. A sacred Buddha image is also located behind the pagoda. Legend has it that it was built by a young farmer who was repentant after murdering his mother. In a tale that aims to teach forbearance, it is said that the young farmer grew irate when a lunchbox packed by his mother seemed to have a tiny amount of rice. Furious, he killed his mother. It was only when he discovered that there was in fact so much rice he could not finish his lunch, as it was packed tightly, that he realized his folly.

The stupa is located in the rice paddies of TambonTatthong. It is 9 kilometers from Yasothon town. Take Highway No. 23 (Yasothon-UbonRatchathani Road), and turn at Km. 194. Continue for 1 more kilometer to reach the stupa.
