Born on a Friday? Phra That Tha U-Then is an Auspicious Place for You in Northeast Thailand



From the poem it is said that Friday’s child is loving and giving and here in Thailand there is a Buddha image for the day of the week you were born and here in Isaan, Northeast Thailand there is a That for you. And if you were born on a Friday that That is Phra That U-Then in the city and Amphor or Amphoe or District of that name in Nakhon Phanom Province on the bank of the Mekong or Mekhong River.
Now yesterday, or the other day depending on when you read this I posted Buddhamonthon,Na Kae,Nakhon Phanom,Thailand. And previous to that I posted Phra That Srikhun at Wat Dan Sao Khoi, Nae Kae District, Nakhon Phanom, Thailand where That Phra Srikhun stands or sits.
I do not know who designed the images on the walls that surround the That and have been unable to discover the story of said images, but I guess it might be said that Friday’s child is loving might or might not have something to do with it. The masks are used in some local parades and festivals. And in order to present a number of other write ups. First here is what Tourism Authority of Thailand has to say Phra That Tha Uthen is located opposite Hin Bun town in Laos. It is situated approximately 26 kilometers north of the city on Highway 212. Similar in style to Phra That Phanom, Phra That Tha Uthen is 66 meters high. Constructed in 1912, the chedi (pagoda) houses the relics of the Lord Buddhas’ disciple brought from over from Yangon, Myanmar.

Prathat Tha Uthen is situated in Tha Uthen District opposite Hinboon in the Province of Khammouange, Lao PDR, which was historical town during the Sri Kotrabun Kingdom. This shrine, which has the likeness of Prathat Phanom, is 33 wa high and 6 wa 3 sok wide. It was built by Pra Archan Sritad in 1912 to store a relic of the Lord Buddha which came from Rangkoog, Burma.

As you can see I find the information presented by each independent source of information amazing diverse. Actually I assume none of these people have actually visited the place…
