Ku Santarattana

Ku Santarattana

A small Khmer site built during the reign of King Chaiworamun the 7th. Experts disagree on what this site was used for. Some say it was a place of worship, others say it was used as a hospital. At the front of Ku Santarattana, there is an arch and a sacred pond. The pond contains fish that can be fed to make merit. There is also another sacred pond nearby which was used for the celebration of King Prajadhipok and King Bhumipol. It is believed that the water from this pond can heal illness such as backache. It is 3.5 kilometers to the north of Amphur Nadoon
