This is an unique chedi in Thailand; Phra That Ya Khu Kalasin was built by the local people to mark the place where they held meetings and performed communal acts of merit. It is believed that the chedi was built on the site of a much earlier monument which dated back to the Dvaravati period. Carved stone boundary markers or Sema of the Dvaravati period can be found scattered throughout Mueang Fa Daed Song Yang.
