Pagoda on an Island


Pagoda on an island is located on Pak Nam Subdistrict, Mueng District, Rayong. The pagoda is bell-shaped. Its height is 10 meters. This pagoda is located  Rayong River, which is surrounded by mangrove forests. The area is 52 km2. The pagoda was established in 1873 when Phaya Srisamutpokkachaichitsongkhram (Kate Yomjinda) was the governor of Rayong Province. After that, Rayong Subdistrict Municipality constructed a bridge to connect the land to the pagoda. The pagoda was the symbol of Rayong Province to fishermen and visitors because, in the past, commuting by boats was the only way to commute from the center of Rayong Province. This pagoda was believed to imitate Phra Samut Chedi or pagoda in the river in Samut Prakarn Province as a symbol that the visitors were close to Bangkok.

The pagoda is the symbol of Rayong Province and it is the pagoda that Rayong people pay respect to. In December, there will be religious ceremonies (e.g., Kathin and paying respect to the pagoda) and other celebrations (e.g., Loy Kratong and Long Boat Race). The ceremony called Hom Pha Chedi is the religious ceremony that people carry red cloths to hang around the pagoda. As the pagoda is huge, the length of the cloths should be 6 meters and there will be two people climbing onto the pagoda. Around the pagoda, there are a lot of pine trees. It is the place for relaxing. Nowadays, subdistrict municipality renovates the pagoda and around the pagoda.
