This monastery houses the Buddha's footprints where annual celebrations take place every 12th lunar month. In addition there is a pavillion named Sala "Thevada Sang" said to be built by angels for its seemingly unlimited capacity.

Khao Woranat Banphot (Khao Kop) This mountain is located behind Paknam Pho City, with a wide courtyard and beautiful flower gardens. It is a popular afternoon rest spot for the city folks. Legend has it that the mountain-top monastery was built in the Reign of King Lithai of Sukhothai over 700 years ago. There is, in addition to pagoda, a Vihara housing the Buddha Footprints. From the mountain-top, one can view the beautiful scenery of Paknam Pho City, Bung Boraphet-swamp in the Northeast and a large jungle in the west where mountain rages appear strung out along the horizon.
 


Utthayan Sawan
A large Public park in an area of 314 rai, is located in the central part of the city. With a small island in the middle of the small lake, the park provides all necessary facilities for recreational purposes for the locals as well as for the tourists.
 

Bung Boraphet Depending on the water lever, it can be a small sized lake, or a large sized swamp, occupying a vast area of approximately 140,000 rai. It is the larges aquaculture source
of fresh water fish in Thailand. There is a museum and aquarium with many species of fresh water fish. Travel to Bung Boraphet may be arranged by car, a trip of about 9 kms. on Nakhon Sawan-Chum Saeng Road, while a boat from the landing behind the City Market takes about half an hour. To the south of Bung Boraphet, 16 kms. along Nakhon Sawan-Tha Tako Road, there is Bung Boraphet Widlife Sanctuary or Waterfowls Park. The park is designed for recreation, abundant in wild animals and birds of different kinds.
 

The Source of Maenam Chao Phraya is a junction of Maenam Ping and Maenam Nan at Tambon Pak Nam Pho. The waters of the Ping flow reddish while those of the Nan flow greenish, as visible from behind a market within the provincial city of Nakhon Sawan, and when met become the source of Chao Phraya, the most important river of Thailand.
 

Dragon and Lion Procession Each Chinese New Year, thousands of Thailand Chinese people from several provinces flock into Nakhon Sawan to celebrate and view the procession, an annual event since 1914. The procession falls on the 4th waxing day of the Chinese 1st lunar month which usually falls around the end of January or early February of every year. This ceremony of Nakhon Sawan is organized in a more grandiose manner than those of other provinces in the country. The colorful and noisy procession includes, among other things, traditional Cantonese Singhtoh (i.e.Lions), DwarfLion, Hainanese style Lion, Engkaw, Lorkoh the clamorous symbol-like and a Taychew musical parade, followed by a long file of hundreds of beautiful young maidens. During the festival, however, all hotels of Nakhon Sawan are fully-booked, and the revelers celebrate day and night, as they do at Chiang Mai's Songkran Festival.
