Festivals held here

Tak Bat Thewo Tradition This religious event of Uthai Thani is organised in the evening of

Ok  Phansa ( end of Buddhist Lent ) on the first day of the waning moon of the eleventh

lunar month at Wat Sangkat Rattana Khiri. It is also in line with the Buddhist chronicles

when the Lord Buddha returned to earth from heaven and gave Dharma. On the day of Tak

Bat Thewo, 500 monks will walk down from the top of Khao Sakae Krang to receive offerings

from residents and visitors to the ceremony, which creates an amazing spectacle and has

made this tradition become well known nationwide.
