“Wat Phra Phutthachai It is said that There is a shadow of the Buddha image. Appeared on the rock It is a silhouette of the Buddha in a standing position. On the ridge”

Wat Phra Phutthachai is on Khao Patthawi in Tambon Nong Pla Lai. It can be reached by taking the same route as Khao Sam Lan National Park. At Km. 102, there is a 5-km. access road and then follow the road sign. It enshrines Phra Phutthachai or the picture of Lord Buddha appearing on a cliff wall. A cone-shaped structure or Mondop was built to cover the picture. Stairs were built from the temple area to the Mondop and go onward to the cliff that is over the Mondop. There are interesting prehistoric paintings on the cliff: behind the door area, there are drawings of animals (deer). Beside the door, there are pictures of hands and symbols. The west of Phra Phutthachai is the Ascetic Cave, where there are paintings of chickens, Buddha images and symbols. The Cho Po Ro cliff wall has large, sophisticated drawings like the paintings of the prehistoric period that were found at Pha Taem in Ubon Ratchathani. The drawings were painted with wood oil, dating from 3,000 years ago. They represent the communication symbols of the same group and presumably were ritual mediums and reflect the beliefs of people of those times.


By car: The entrance to Wat Phra Phutthachai is the same way as Khao Sam LAN National Park. It is a separate road from Phaholyothin Road at the 102nd kilometer (Khok Hin Rae Village, Nong Yao Subdistrict) for 5 kilometers (distance along the road from the city. Saraburi, go south for 6 kilometers and turn left for 5 kilometers)
