Tham Ruesi Khao Ngu (ถ้ำฤาษีเขางู) In the cave, there is a Buddha image sculptured on the wall with a gesture of sitting in the European style and giving a sermon. There are many interesting tourist attractions as follows: Lord Buddha’s Footprint made of laterite, reliefs of a massive reclining Buddha image, and reliefs of the Lord Buddha’s two followers.

Tham Chomphon (ถ้ำจอมพล) In 1895, King Rama V and Queen Saovabha Phongsri visited the cave and were impressed with the so-called ‘Pha Wichit’ stalactites which looked like the fringe of a shoulder strap of a Field Marshal. Therefore, they gave the cave a new name “Tham Chomphon” or Field Marshal Cave.
