Wat Phra Phutthachai:

Wat Phra Phutthachai is situated on the foot of Khao Pathawi, Nong Pla Lai Sub-district,

the same entrance as Phra Phutthachai National Park, where Phra Phutthachai or Roi Phra

Phuttharup - a shadow of the Buddha is located on the cliff. A Mondop - a square building

with a crown-like spire - was built to cover it. A staircase was also constructed to lead the

way from the temple to the cliff above the Mondop.

Moreover, there are pre-historic line drawings at the foot of the cliff such as the drawing

similar to deer. Near the entrance to Phra Phutthachai, there are human hands and symbols.

From Tham Ruesi to Phra Phutthachai on the western side, there are drawings of chickens, Buddha images and symbols. Also, on the Cho Po Ro cliff, a gigantic and complicated drawing was found. It is similar to the pre-historic one at Pha Taem, Ubon Ratchathani. Moreover, there is an ancient drawing with latex, aged about 3,000 years, symbolising the meaning among the group and probably used as a ceremonial medium or belief of the people in that period of time.

Furthermore, Roi Phra Phutthabat Bueang Khwa - Buddha’s right footprint - was discovered in 1994. The Fine Arts Department renovated the Mondop on the mountain in the area of Wat Phra Phutthachai. When the cement floor was removed, the Buddha’s right footprint appeared under the sand printed on a stone.
