Phra Tad Yaku is the biggest Chedi in the Muang Fah Daed Song Yang. The foundation is in a square shape decorated with plaster work. There are stairs on the 4 directions. It is the architectural style of Dvaravadee Kingdom. Next to it is an 8-cubic Chedi which was built according to the Chedi style in the Ayudhaya Kingdom. The bell and the tip were built according to the Rattanakosin Kingdom’s architectural style. From the 3 architectural style combination, it is assumed that this Chedi was built during the Dvaravadee Kingdom. Then, it was ruined as time passed. During the Ayudhaya Kingdom, a Chedi was built on top of the old one and during the Rattanakosin Kingdom, the tip was added.

Inside the Chedi, the villagers believed that the ash of the popular monk was located. This was noticed because during the defeat of Chiangsom of the war, they destroyed all the works in Muang Fah Daed Song Yang except Phra Tad Yaku. Therefore, the villagers held a worshipping festival for this Chedi during April to May in order to ask for the rain and peace for the village. If you have a chance to visit this city, it is worth your visit.
