Wat Khao Khuen or Wat Khao Nang Buat (Wat Phra Achan Thammachot) -
Tambon nang Buat, Amphoe Doem Bang Nang Buat, Suphanburi
Category : Temple
Attraction Details :
The temple is located on Nang Buat mountain at kilometre 138-139 of Highway 340, 51 kilometres from downtown. A former monk resident of this temple, Phra Achan Thammachot, played a key role in the ancient war against the Burmese troops. By his excellence in talisman, villagers of Ban Bang Rachan in Sing Buri Province invited him to encourage all warriors to fight against the Burmese troops, which were defeating Ayutthaya at the time.
The temple’s image hall houses the Lord Buddha’s footprint. And nearby is a pagoda made from a pile of stone slabs. From the mountain’s peak, a beautiful panoramic view of the Amphoe is worth visiting.
