Sa Kaeo Province Page 5, Lots more places to visit

Sa Kaeo Province, and places to go and see

Wat Nakhon Tham -  Within the compound of the temple are interesting attractions, Luangpho Khao, an ancient Buddha image aged around 100 years in a cross-legged posture, and cast of lime (white soil from Nong Din Chi). Furthermore, the Luangpho Khao’s hall also houses the Buddha’s Relics, brought from Wat Pamadunla Racha Maha Wihan, in Ratnapura, Sri Lanka, a replica of the Buddha’s Footprint and the image of Phra Siam Devadhiraj.

 

Prasat Ban Noi  - It is divided into three rooms inside: one each in the north and south, while the other is at the centre. Outside the boundary wall lays a pond in the northeast. Inside the boundary wall in the southeastern corner stands a construction made of laterite. It is a Bannalai - a library. At the centre inside the boundary wall is a Prang whose base was made of laterite with a height of one metre.

 

The Replica of Phra Siam Devadhiraj Image  - The replica was taken to the frontier for protecting the soldiers, policemen, and people from the fighting. At present, Phra Siam Devadhiraj is a sacred image of the people of Aranyaprathet and those in the nearby provinces.

 

Wat Anubanphot or Khao Noi  -  Inside the temple is a beautiful ordination hall, different from others because of its square base with a width of 11.5 metres, and its pointed traditional Thai spire roof decorated in the Thai style of art.

 

The Plant Genetic Preservation Project under the Royal Initiative of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn  - It is open as an eco - tourism attraction for tourists with a speaker guiding around the place and providing an explanation on various species of plants, herbs, as well as, the 1,500 – 2,000 flying foxes, residing in this area for ten years.

 

Prasat Khao Noi Si Chomphu  - It is believed to have been a Hindu shrine. The Prasat is made of bricks without any use of mortar. It comprises three brick constructions;  the northern Prang, the central Prang, and the southern Wihan. However, only the central one remains in good condition, while only the bases of the northern and the southern ones are left.

 

Prasat Mueang Phai - The interesting object is an ancient chedi made of bricks into a rectangular shape with 4 porticos engraved into beautiful floral, vine and personage designs.

 

King Naresuan the Great’s Statue  -  This statue was erected because in the past, Watthana Nakhon District was once an area where King Naresuan the Great resided during the battles in the East in 1593.
