Amphoe Senang khanikhom

 

Phu Sa Dok Bua On the mountain top one finds 11 stone pools, each a few metres wide. It is quite strange that all of them are occupied by different species of colourful lotus which normally are found in swamps. Locals insist that no one planted the lotus and that they occur naturally. So, they named these pools Phu Sa Dok Bua, literally Mountain Lotus Pool. Nearby is a huge cave which can accommodate hundreds of people. It once served as a stronghold of the Communist Party of Thailand.

Amnat Charoen, Interesting places to see around the Province.
