Phrathat Kham Kaen Located in Wat Chetiyaphum, the Phrathat is believed to be the origin of Khon Kaen city since ancient times. Phrathat Kham Kaen can be date the 20th century A.D. According to the legend, a back to  king who ruled Mori town in the Khmer kingdom assigned nine senior monks to bring relics of the Lord Buddha

to be placed in Phrathat Phanom. On the way, the caravan spent a night here, setting a camp

by the heartwood of a dead tamarind tree. The caravan reached Nakhon Phanom on the next

day just to learn that Phrathat Phanom had already been completed, so they returned on the

same route with a  wish to  place the  relics  at their  hometown instead. On  the way back,

they were surprised to find the  dead  tamarind  tree buddingly lush. Therefore, they decided

to build a Phrathat here and placed the relics and Buddha images inside, naming  Phrathat

Kham Kaen which means the Stupa of tamarind heartwood. The Phrathat is now well renovated and landscaped. A celebration is held annually on the full moon day of the 6th lunar month.
