Presentation

This temple built during the Ayutthaya period was later elevated to a royal temple. it is the only one in the province. Wat Tham Khuha Sawan is the most imprtant temple in Phatthalung city. It is particularly famous for the cave that is located at the back and hosts several Buddha statues including a reclining Buddha and several seated images. You will also find on the walls near the entrance to the cave the initials of kings and members of the Thai royal family who came here to visit. Otherwise the temple itself is also interesting but its ordination hall is not always open. On the small Khao Khuha Sawan hill, there is an old chedi. From there the dominant view over Phatthalung seems interesting but I did not climb. It was not the few monkeys who live here that made me backtrack but there were 5 very not welcoming dogs barring the path. it is a great pity but it happens sometimes in Thailand. In general, the monks come to calm them down but not this time. If you have more luck, I really think that climbing up there is worth the trip.
