Attraction Details :
Located on a hill in Tambon Mueang Phan, approximately 12 kilometers south of Phu Phra Bat Historical Park, this is a site where what is thought to be a footprint of the Buddha is housed in an Ubosot (ordination hall). Many pieces of Bai Sema (boundary stones) were excavated here. They were made of sandstone and carved into images of Thewadas (male deities) and Apsaras (female deities), in a mixture of Dvaravati and Lop Buri styles.
To reach Phra Phutthabat Bua Ban from Udon Thani town, head north on Highway No. 2. After 20 kilometers turn right onto Highway No. 2021 for 43 kilometers before turning left onto Highway No. 2098 for 75 kilometers. Then follow the signs for another 6 kilometers to the site.
