Inside chedi Phra Nakhorn Khiri
Khao Wang Phetchaburi
Phra Nakhorn Khiri
The white chedi of Phra Nakhon Khiri, the Phra That Chom Phet, is probably the first thing you see when you arrive in Phetchaburi and this is certainly the one you will probably go visit first. The ride is nice, the path to go upstairs lovely. The monuments are grouped into three groups. Besides the big white chedi and the building of the museum which was built during King Rama IV's reign and became his summer palace in 1860, theWat Phra Kaeo is the furthest monument and is not as beautiful as other Wat Phra Kaew temples in Thailand but it offers an interesting view over Phetchaburi City.
In this park you will bump every 30 meters on a warning sign to tell you to beware of monkeys that live on the hill but they did not seem so dangerous to us. It is an interesting palce to visit even if the small museum did not passionate us and that we probably expect something different when we hear or read the "Historical Park" mention. But still the view over the city from Khao Wang mount and its 92 meters high is nice and it is a quiet little piece of nature (the park doesn't have so many visitors) with interesting buildings. Phra Nakhorn Khiri is Phetchaburi's must see and a pleasant but tiring walk if you do not use the cable car to go up. With Tham Khao Luang cave temple, it is one of the two most famous attractions in Phetchaburi.
