Nakhon Pathom and Nakhon Panhom

The word nakhon originates from the Sanskrit word nagara meaning ‘city’ (many Thai vocabulary is derived from or borrowed from Sanskrit and others languages).

There are many nakhon cities in Thailand: Nakhon Ratchasima, Nakhon Si Tammharat, Nakhon Sawan… There is also a Nakhon Phanom city (only one letter to difference it from Nakhon Pathom) located 736 km north-east of Bangkok on the Mekong river, in front of The Laotian town of Thakhek.
