My assistant just wrote a nice article about this temple in Petchabun that I didn't know. The pictures are  amazing and my wife knew that place. But I didn't....

Wat Phra That Pha Kaew[/ ] is a Buddhist temple located on a hill district in Phetchabun. That province is well known for its mountain and the surrounding of the temple is just beautiful. Probably a great place to meditate!  T

Like in some "holy places" in Thailand, you are forbidden to wear shorts or sleeveless shirts. You must be dressed appropriately.

The original article in Thai explaining this temple, how to get there and others is here:

Unfortunately, I do not have the time to fully translate it but I thought the pictures was so nice that is needs to be shared.
