City Attractions
Ban Dong Lakhon Archaeological Site     

Located 9 kilometers south of town in Dong Lakhon Sub-district, Ban Dong Lakhon is a site where religious artifacts including fragments of Buddha images, seals, jewelry and ornaments were found. They are now on displayed at the Prachin Buri National Museum.

The findings from the excavation can be dated back to the Dvaravati Period. The settlement that was discovered was oval in shape, 600 meters wide and 700 meters long, with double city walls and culverts, a common Dvaravati style in Thailand’s central region.

The site was initially called "Mueang Lap Lae" which literally means mysterious town. Legend has it that Mueang Lup Lae was a town where the Queen of Cambodia resided. The town was hidden from the outside world by dense tall trees which usually prevented visitors from entering or exiting. Local people were able to hear royal classical Thai music played during the night. Thus they called the area “Dong Lakhon”. (Lakhon in Thai means a classical play) The Fine Arts Department registered Dong Lakhon as a national historical site on March 8, 1935.

 City Pillar Shrine       

The most honored Shrine in the city, the San Lak Mueang has been reconstructed and renovated several times. Situated near the Old City, it was once an old Shrine housing a 1-metre wooden column with a carving of a lotus at the top. In 1910, the City Pillar was enshrined at the Red Building of the Sri Nakhon Nayok School where a new four-cornered pavilion situated along Maenam Nakhon Nayok was established to house the Pillar. Inside the Shrine visitors will see one corner dedicated to Narai, a Hindu God, and another corner to a Buddhist image from the Ayutthaya period.

 Namtok Lan Rak or Namtok Tat Hin Kong

Situated in Phramani Sub-district on the way to Namtok Sarika and Namtok Nang Rong, this is a unique waterfall originating from a small stream which flows through a large rocky formation at the foot of a small hill.
