Attraction Details :
Ratchakhiri Hiranyaram Temple was constructed upon a hilltop which houses two Buddha’s footprints where one is a replica and the other is on the face of the western cliff. The temple houses Guan Yin statue that features a thousand hands carved entirely from white jade that was sent to the temple in 1992. Further up the hill, you will find Heng Jia, the Monkey King which is worshipped by Thai-Chinese visitors. Upon reaching the mountain top, you will pass a pond that has never run dry since ancient times. The top of the mountain is a great scenic viewpoint of the mountain and its surrounding locations and is the site of the Phra Mahathat Chedi Si Bowon Chinnarat, a pagoda that enshrines the forehead bone of the Lord Buddha. The pagoda has a lotus shaped spire with images of the walking Buddha on all sides of the square base. A celebration of the temple is held every year in February.
