Kamphaeng Phet - Historic Wat Phra Kaew

historic wat phra kaew in kamphaeng phet thailand

Wat Phra Kaew is a large temple in a separate compound between the town and the historic park. However, one ticket serves for both attractions. This site needs to be walked as it is smaller and has no roads.

One unique feature of the temple is the cluster of 3 Buddha images; two seated and one reclining.

The temple was built in the 14th or 15th century. Archeological excavations at the site are ongoing.

These great old trees are worth some appreciation as well. This is one of thos cool and peaceful oases in a part of Thailand that many people don't visit. Take some time and contemplate how the area may have looked in a previous time.
