Utthayan Muang Kao Pichit About seven kilometres from town on the Phichit-Wang Chick road ( no. 1068 ) The park features an ancient town dating back more than 900 years. Most of the structures discovered were built

during the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya periods. The old town is surrounded by city walls and moats.

During the Sukhothai period it was called Muang Sa Luang situated on the original bank of the

Nan River before the river changed its course, which was the reason the town itself was moved to

the new bank in circa 1881 during the reign of king Rama V. In the town centre is Wat Phra Si

Rattana Mahathat with its large bell shaped Chedi inside of which have been found hundreds of

votive tablets. In front of the Chedi are remains of a Wihan. There are score of small Chedi's scattered

around the site.

There are two seasons for pomelo - October and April. The peels of young pomelo are made into jam-like sweets, highly popular as snack.
