  • This wat was just stunningly beautiful; it seemed to float diaphanously above the mortal world. There were even monkeys present and these primates could liven up proceedings.  more »
  • Monkeys are everywhere. The people don't bother them. The image of buddha on the wall and the footprint is very interesting to see. Defenitely recommending it to everyone near sara buri.  more »

  • Peaceful. Great experience...with the monkeys
  • his temple is renowned for its Buddha image as well as a nearby cliff, where a shadow image of the Buddha can be seen, known as RoiPhraPhuttharup. A Mondop, or outdoor pavilion, was built to shelter it. The temple is also home to pre-historic drawings at the foot of the cliff, portraying animals such as deer. Near the entrance to PhraPhutthachai (the Buddha image), there are drawings of human hands and symbols. From the cave, ThamRuesi, to PhraPhutthachai on the western side, there are drawings of chickens, Buddha images and symbols. Also, on the Cho Po Ro cliff, a gigantic and complicated drawing was found. It is similar to the pre-historic drawing at PhaTaem, UbonRatchathani. Moreover, there is an ancient drawing made of latex, aged approximately 3,000 years, likely once used as part of religious ceremonies by inhabitants at the time. WatPhraPhutthachai is situated on the foot of KhaoPathawi, NongPla Lai Sub-district, with the same entrance as PhraPhutthachai National Park.
  • One of the best temples in Thailand.
  • Feels like a Buddhist monastery out of a movie. High up on a cliff, it has wonderful aesthetics, great views, friendly monkeys, and a whole bunch of things to see. I think I spend close to an hour there. Bring water!
  • Small, atmospheric Wat, pleasant views, if your in area give it a go. Lots of monkeys so look after your things - no feeding them!
