Attraction Details :

There are 3 atria in this cave. In the first cave section, a pond teems with myriad fish. In the second, stalactites and stalagmites form shapes said to be similar to deities known as Kuan Im Bodhissatva and Hok Lok Sio, the three Chinese gods. The remaining atrium is actually a myriad of smaller caves, with coral reef-like stone formations. The cave can only be visited during the dry season. In addition, within the cave sits Luangpho Yai, a stucco Buddha image covered with black lacquer and gold leaf from the Ayutthaya period. In the rear two more large caves can be found: Tham Sam Khao and Tham Thep Prathan.

There are two routes to get there. Drive for 12 kilometers from Saraburi town along Mittraphap Road and turn left to Kaeng Khoi District through the market. Continue for 8 kilometers over the Adireksan Bridge. Alternatively, drive for 15 kilometers from the town along Highway No. 1 to Phu Khae Witthaya School and then drive for 10 kilometers on the Phu Khae-Kaeng Khoi Road.

The cave is only open on weekends from 8.00 am-6.00 pm.
