Attraction Details :

The ancient temple is located in Amphoe Mueang, two kilometres north of Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat. Wat Khae, which was mentioned in Thai literature ‘Khun Chang Khun –Phaen, houses a huge tamarind tree which is around a thousand years old. The tamarind tree is 9.5 metres in circumference. It is believed that Khun Phaen learnt magic from Master Khong, spelling magic words and transforming tamarind leaves into wasps and hornets to fight the enemy. Nearby the tree is “Khum Khun Phaen”, a traditional Thai house built as part of the literature and historical conservation park.
The temple houses special antiques such as Lord Buddha’s footprints called “Phra Phutthabat Si Roi”. They are four footprints, each laying over the others. The footprints are made from brass, measuring 1.40 metres wide and 2.80 metres long. There is also an image of Buddha seated in the gesture of subduing Mara and wearing a robe with beautiful floral pattern of the Rattanakosin period. Other antiques include a brass bell, brass boiler for boiling robe dye, and a Thai-style bookcase, that King Rama V donated to the temple in 1869.
