Lonely Planet review
The main cavern in the cave sanctuary of Khao Luang is lined with impressive stalactites and crammed with old Buddha statues, many of which were put in place by Rama IV. Sunlight from a hole in the chamber ceiling illuminates the images and makes for great photos. To the rear of the main cavern is an entrance to a third, smaller chamber. On the right of the entrance is Wat Bunthawi, with a săh·lah (often spelt sala; meeting hall) designed by the abbot of the wát himself and a bòht (central sanctuary) with impressively carved wooden door panels. Around the cave you’ll meet brazen monkeys looking for handouts. The cave is 4km north of town.
