Phetchabun City Pillar The pillar is housed in a shrine located in the heart of the city being a stone pillar brought over from Muang Si Thep by H.R.H. Prince Damrong Rachanuparp in the year 1804.

Wat Mahathat This monastery has been existing along with Petchabun town itself having a 3-meter high Sukhothai style Phum Khao Binth design pagoda. In March 1967, renovation was made by the Department of Fine Arts and several Buddha images of various periods were found.

Wat Traiphum is located on Phetcharat Rd., housing a Buddha image named Phra Buddha Maha Thammaracha which has also been existing along with Phetchabun. It is cast in the ornamental Lopburi style which has been found by the city inhabitants in the Pa Sak River in front of Wat Triphum and housed in this monastery. Later on, this Buddha image disappeared and found again at the bottom of Mae Nam Pa Sak at the very same location. Hence, it has become annual tradition of Phetchabun that Phra Buddha Maha Thammaracha be celebrated in the proession around the city, during Sart Festival, until the procession arrives at the spot where the Buddha image was found. The Governor of Phetchabun, then, carries this Buddha image and dives into the river, an action believed to bring well-being to the city inhabitants.
