Locally known as Wat Tham or a cave temple, Wat Suwan Khuha is one of the province’s important temples due to its historical and archaeological background. The temple is located on a mountain with a number of caves such as Tham Chaeng, Tham Muet, Tham Kaeo and Tham Yai, which is the lowest level. Decorated with ceramic tiles and crockery throughout its length, this cave serves as a wihan (chapel) where several Buddha images are enshrined. The most important one is the Reclining Buddha. In another cave, there are royal initials of kings and members of the royal family, such as King Rama V the Great, King Rama VII and Queen Rambhaibarni, King Rama IX the Great, etc. The area in front of the cave is the feeding ground of a large number of monkeys.
