Suwan-Kuha Temple: A cave temple located on the top of the mountain, houses a reclining Buddha which is 15 meters in height with tiny shrines and chedis. It is popularly known as the Monkey Cave as it is home to hundreds of long-tailed macaques.
 

Wat Phra Thong: The Phra Thong temple displays the beauty of an enormous Buddha statue that is partly submerged underground while the other half protrudes outwards. A myth prophesized that from this site whenever the Burmese, during the invasion in 1785, attempted to dig deeper and transport this statue back to their country, a swarm of hornets assaulted them, preventing the soldiers from  excavating the site, and causing them to flee.

Wat Mahathat: This must-visit temple harbors the myth of the King of Thailand’s favorite monk who had supernatural abilities to predict the future. In his name, this site erected a 15-meter high black monk statue. It also hosts a freshly-built temple and a separate shrine where visitors can pay their respects to the surreal wax statues of the monks showering blessing upon their followers.
