Nakhon Si Thammarat

Located 780 km from the south of Bangkok, Nakhon Si Thammarat is a phenomenon of history and culture that is absolutely significant to Thailand's past. The province's role in history changed across the years, it was a Buddhism center and was also used as an import for Portuguese, British, Arab and Indian merchants. After that, it became a central commercial route between the south of India and China. The city used to be its own independent kingdom and previously known as Ligor, which was formed as a part of the Srivijaya empire after the Thai rebellion. Now Nakhon Si Thammarat is a wonderful place filled with museums and temples holding history in its own walls.

Highlights

Nakhon Si Thammarat Nang Talung Museum

Nang Talung Museum
Nang Talung Museum offers one of the most unique experiences you will ever encounter, and probably the most entertaining history lesson. The art of Nang Talung is the art of shadow puppetry and that exactly is what the museum excels at. With small shadow puppets made from cow skin comes this amazing cultural performance that has originated a long time ago in Southern Thailand. Suchar Subsin was the master Nang Talung and had cultivated the art to reach a global audience, since his passing, his family and apprentices have been doing a great job in keeping the art alive and thriving.
