Attraction Details :

Phu Phra is a small mountain located at Ban Kanaisa, Tambon Na Sieo. On one of its cliff faces, there are bas-reliefs of Buddha images from the U Thong period. They date from the late 13th – late 14th century, around the early Ayutthaya period. Each April, a three-day fair is held at the temple, Wat Sila, to pay homage to the drawings.

The bas-reliefs are currently sheltered by a roof. Amongst the depictions is a large Buddha image, looming over two meters high and 1.5 meters wide, named Phrachao Ong Tue. Another Buddha image, a small 17-centimeter high sandstone statue, is in a similar seated posture. Seven other images are situated around a sandstone column.

 To get there, from Chaiyaphum town, take Highway No. 201 (Chaiyaphum - Phu Khiao) for 15 kilometers, then turn left onto Na Sieo - Huai Chan road for 5 kilometers. Finally, turn left and continue for 1 kilometer to reach the temple.
