The PhuKhae Botanical Garden is home to over 30 kinds of plants and flowers cited in the canons of Thai literature as well as herbs. The garden was established in 1941, and was at the time the first of its kind in Thailand. In addition to being a source of knowledge for those interested in plants, it is aimed at promoting botanical learning and providing the public with a place for relaxation.
