Presentation City Pillar Shrine

Thai name : ศาลหลักเมือง จังหวัดนครศรีธรรมราช
My opinion:
Many cities in Thailand, including Bangkok, have a pillar that symbolically marks the foundation of the city to which people come to pay homage. The small sanctuary built around Nakhon Si Thammarat city pillar is a pretty all white building with beautiful stucco decorations on its exterior walls. In the center stands the golden pillar.

If you need information or maps to prepare the rest of your visit in the province, you can take the opportunity to go to the tourist office of the city, the Office of TAT (Tourist Authority of Thailand) which is next door.
