Khao Luang Cave

Khao Luang Cave

This cave is located approximately 5km north from Khao Wang. From the foot hill, there are concrete stair cases leading to the cave entrance. Khao Luang is a small-sized hill having a height of 92 meters at the peak. However, Khao Luang Cave is regarded as the Largest and most important cave of Phetchaburi province because the important ornamented Buddha image built by King Rama V and dedicated to King Rama III and IV is enshrined here.
This cave had been a royal picnic site since the King Rama IV period. He was very fond of this place so that he commanded the renovation of several old Buddha images in the cave.

On the right hand side of the entrance at Khao Luang foot hill, there is a big beautiful monastery called by Phetchaburi folks Wat Tham Klaep which is now Wat Bunthawi. There are some interesting items to be seen in this monastery such as a hude multipurpose pavilion, and beautiful wood carved door panels of the main shrine hall which was designed and constructed by the Lord Abbot who was a famous artisan. The old legend told by Phetchaburi folks for centuries is that the entrance of the cave at this monastery is the entrance of a twilight zone town where inhabitants are only young maidens.



How to get there
- from Bangkok's side of highway 4 take the flyover to Phetchaburi and turn left at the first cross road drive straight on (road 3173) for about 2km until foot of the hill. On the right you will see Wat Bunthawi. Drive to the parking area at the top of the hill. There you can hire an English speaking guide for the cave if you want to. They accept any fee.

 

 

 

 

Khao Bandai It

This is a small hill having a height of 121 meters at he peak. It is located two kilometers from Khao Wang. On the hill there is a very old monastery called Wat Khao Bandai.Besides Wat Khao Bandai It, there are several caves, which are huge in size and are located underneath the hill.

The first cave is called "Tham Prathun" which has buddha images enshrined along both walls of the cave. If one goes further inside the can reach another cave called "Tham Phra Chao Sua". The name was give to the cave because King Sua came here to visit his teacher, Lord Abbot Saeng, who was offered a two-meter standing Buddha statue this statue is in the attitude of calming the ocean and has been enshrined in that cave over since then.

Another cave located deeper inside is "Tham Phraphuttha Saiyat" which literally means the "Reclining Buddha Cave". Such name is given to the cave because a Reclining Buddha is enshried in that cave. Besides the Buddha image, there is also (in the cave too) a very old wooden boat roof which was offered to the Lord Abbot Saeng by King Sua. In addition, there are several more caves such as Phra Athit Cave, Phra Chan Cave, Duke Cave (the name given to the cave after a visit made by Duke Johan Albert), Sawang Arom Cave, and Chang Phuak Cave, which may satisfy cave visitors to a high degree.
