Sa Kaeo Sa Khwan are twin ponds located to the west of the centre of the town within the Sa Kaeo Sa Khwan Public Park, near the Sa Kaeo Municipality Office, Suwannason Road (approximately between Km. 246-247) within Soi Thetsaban 2. It is believed that the water in the ponds is holy. According to legend, during the Kingdom of Thon Buri, Phraya Chakkri (Thong Duang) was appointed by King Taksin the Great to lead an army to fight the unrest in Cambodia. When the troops arrived at the place where it is currently Sa Kaeo, they stopped at both ponds before the fight at Siem Reap.
