Wat Pha Sorn Kaew, Khaem Son

4.8
#1 of 21 in Things to do in Phetchabun Province
Visit one of Thailand's most striking temples at Wat Pha Sorn Kaew, a colorful structure built on a mountain peak. The temple features upwards of 5 million mosaic tiles and pottery items on the main pagoda and surrounding buildings. Next to the pagoda, a platform holds five images of Buddha surrounded by lotus flowers; look for the stained-glass pagoda in the gardens, too. Tourists do not regularly visit this attraction because there is no direct public transportation to it, but you can arrange for a private car to take you there. Remember to wear long pants and sleeves. Using our international travel planner, Khaem Son attractions like Wat Pha Sorn Kaew can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    One of the best temple in Thailand. There are also many more hidden treasures inside not typically accessible to tourist. Find a guide.

    This was a last minute stop, but we were so happy we went as this was one of highlights on our Thailand tour. Up in the mountains this beautiful temple sits, the view is amazing. The craftsmanship is highly detailed. A must see!!

    This temple is situated on the mountain with the cold and refreshing. you will feel at peace when you are here. The temple also has a very beautiful and unique architecture. In front of the entrance to the temple is also a shop selling souvenirs, fruit shops and restaurants.
