Hae Pha Khuen That Festival is celebrated at Phra Borom That Chedi. The pagoda is considered to be the representative of Lord Buddha and is believed by locals to possess unsurpassed might of righteousness as it contains holy relics. Every year Buddhists pay homage to the pagoda by organizing a procession bearing a religious cloth to wrap around the pagoda to bring good fortune and success. This festival is held twice a year during Magha Puja Day (the 15th full-moon night of February) and Visakha Puja Day (the 15th full-moon night of May). It is advisable to book your hotel in advance for Nakhon Si Thammarat as many people will attend this festival. Click here to search on Agoda.
