Ban Khao Kaeo  A traditional Thai wooden house of about 80-100 years old. It is the property of Achan Songchai Wannakun. The house was established as the Thai Yuan Cultural Study Centre, collecting folk utensils, weapons, present day tools as well as ancient woven textiles of over 100 years old.

 

Wat Khao Kaeo Worawihan  is located in Ton Tan Sub-district, on the right side of the Pa Sak River, six kilometres from Sao Hai District Office. When King Rama IV visited Sao Hai District, he ordered the renovation of this temple and promoted it as a royal temple. There has been a rumour that there used to be a bright crystal ball over the Wihan of Wat Khao Khaeo on some nights. It is considered a miracle of the sacred object contained inside the Chedi. Inside the small 5-spired Chedi situated between the bell tower and the main Chedi reside the adorned Buddha image, Buddha image in the Palelai (Palilayaka) posture, and the Lord Buddha’s footprint. All these are beautiful.
