Attraction Details :

Wat Khao Khun Phanom is an important temple of historical and archaeological background. The temple has a cave lined with a brick wall and marked with heart-shaped stones similar to those along the city wall. The wall at the entrance has plaster decorated with Chinese porcelain. In the cave, there are about 30 bronze Buddha images and a bronze Buddha's footprint. Several smaller connecting caves branch out from the main cave are like an elaborate fortress maze. People believe this is where King Taksin the Great (1734-1782) used to stay while many believe it was the rest stop of Princess Kesini, daughter of Chao Nara Suriyawong, the lord of Nakhon Si Thammarat during 1769-1776
