Wat, Bot and Chedi are the important of Buddhism

Thailand’s mysteriously beautiful temple are not relics of the past – they are in use daily as the thais are very religious(predominantly Buddhist: over 90 %). A Buddhist Temple (over 23,000 in Thailand) is a “Wat” meaning “monastery” where monk reside. The “Bot” (pronounced “Boat”) is the most important building in temple compound. A “Chedi” (“jay dee”) is circular monument with the sharp spire and often contains a vault of religious objects. A “Prang” is similar, but with a thick spire, and is of Cambodian origin.
