Visiting Phra Nakhon Khiri in Phetchaburi
|Phra Nakhon Khiri in Phetchaburi, Thailand (2007)|
When you are traveling by car from Bangkok to Hua Hin you will be passing Phetchaburi. And almost right along the highway you will see a hill with a temple, palace and Chedi's over 3 hill peaks. This is Phra Nakhon Khiri, a historical park in Phetchaburi on a hill overlooking the city. The name Phra Nakhon Khiri means 'holy city hill', but locals call it Khao Wang, meaning 'hill with palace'. The whole complex was built as a summer palace by King Mongkut, with construction finished in 1860. Photos were taken in 2007.
