Tham Phraya Nakhon

Tham Phraya Nakhon A huge cave located in the area of Hat Laem Sala. This vast cavern, high on the hill (430m up) is a favourite destination for visitors to the Park. The cave is actually two large sinkholes, the roofs have collapsed allowing sunlight and rain to reach the floor, where threes have now rooted, reaching for the ceiling. The most popular attraction of the cave is Phra Thinang Khuha Kharuehat, a four-gabbled roofing pavilion.

The cave was discovered by one of two lords, both named Nakorn Srithammaraja, one of whom governed during the reign of king Narai (1656-1694), the other during the reign of king Rama I (1772-1779). On the 20th of June 1890, King Rama V visited the cave and has signed his name on the north wall of the cavern. A pavilion was built to commemorate the occasion. King Rama VII visited the site in 1926 and signed his name. King Rama IX has visited the cavern twice.
With its beauty and distinctive identity the pavilion is now used as the symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan.
