Wat Sirikhetkiri

Wat Sirikhetkiri

Wat Sirikhetkiri is situated near the mountain that leads to the Paa Ka National Park, starting from Amphur Muang along the 12 highway for around 15 kilometers then turn right to the 1113 highway til the Sarnjit junction. At Sarnjit junction, turn left along the 1294 highway for around 5 kilometers and the temple is on the right side. The distance is around 55-60 kilometers altogether.

Wat Sirikhetkiri is located among the hills and trees which really contrast with the white color decoration inside the temple. Inside the temple, there is a beautiful Buddha statue of Somdet Ong Prathom, which is believed to be the first statue in the world built in the nirvana posture. On another hilltop not far from the hall, is the place where Pra Puttachaimongkolmunee, the white Buddha image, is enshrined. It is believed that whoever comes to worship this Buddha image will receive eternal happiness.
