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.
