Attraction Details :

  The medium-sized mountain named Khao Chong Krajok is located within the compound of Wat Thammikaram, at 245 meters above sea level, next to Prachuap Khiri Khan Bay. To go there by train, get off at Prachuap Khiri Khan Railway Station and continue with a motor-tricycle or motorbike service. In case of driving, keep going along Highway no. 4 (Phetchkasem Road) until Km. 320. Then turn left into Amphoe Mueang Prachuap Khiri Khan. After crossing the railway track for about 2 kilometers, drive pass the provincial sport stadium and go straight for another 500 meters to Wat Thammikaram. The entrance to Khao Chong Krajok is on the right of the temple.

The mountain derives its name from the natural opening on the mountain top which resembles a mirror frame. In 1954 (2497 BE), a flight of 396 steps was built to accommodate visitors. Not only that Khao Chong Krajok is home to numerous stump-tailed macaques, it is also the location of Wat Khao Chong Krajok where the replica of the Buddha’s footprint and the relics of the Buddha were enshrined. On 12 June 1958 (2501 BE), His Majesty came here to perform the sacred ceremony of installing the relics into the pagoda. The King also planted a Mahabodhi tree brought directly from Bodh Gaya. For these reasons, Khao Krajok is considered the symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan. 

On the mountain peak, there is a pavilion for relaxation. Visitors can overlook the panoramic view of Prachuap Khiri Khan, such as Tanaosri mountain range, Ao Prachuap Khiri Khan, Khao Ta Mong Lai Forest Park, Khao Lom Muak and etc.
