Presentation Tham Khao Luang Cave

Thai name : ถ้ำเขาหลวง
My opinion:
4 kilometers from Khao Wang and Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park, Khao Luang mount is also populated by some monkey and has a set of caves and tunnels in which a temple with several Buddha statues and altars is settled. After paying the entrance fee and climbing in the songtaew taking you to a staircase of twenty steps leading to the entrance of the cave, you will quickly arrive in the first room where a big sitting Buddha and a lot of other smaller statues stand blow a skylight where sometimes sunbeams venture making the scene very photogenic. Further on the left before the small porch of the second room, a reclining Buddha follows a Fat Buddha image. The second room has many statues and also a skylight. Then a set og galleries and a staircase leading outside (when we were there, the top was blocked). You will be as well impressed by the immensity of the cave as by its opening to the sky and statues. The place was very popular with the King Rama V who ordered the main Buddha had odered the restoration of several others to pay homage to his ancestors.
For those who do not yet know cave temples in Thailand, it is one of the most interesting one. With Phra Nakhon Khiri, Tham Khao Luang is one of the two most famous attractions in Phetchaburi.
