Sakon Nakhon

The escutcheon of Sakon Nakhon shows the Phrathat Cheung Chum chedi, built with the intention to one day house all Phraphutthabaht, i.e. the footprints of the Buddha, found in Thailand. ‘Cheung Chum’ means ‘collecting pedestals’ and refers to the pedestals with a footprint of the Buddha. This chedi is regarded as the local kuh bahn kuh meuang and the symbol of Sakon Nakhon.
