Wat Nong Bua

The temple is known for its stupa, Phra That Chedi Si Maha Pho, built in 1957 to mark 2,500 years of Buddhism. A replica of the Mahabodhi stupa in Bodhgaya in India, the stupa has an architectural style that is totally unique and distinctive.

No other stupas (chedis) found in I-san (Northeastern Thailand) are built in a similar style.
