At the bottom side of the hill Wat Tham Sua is located the car parks and beside have the building Hall and small Wiharn with veneration statues of top monks.
From the car park, a staircase leads up to the top to see the giant seated Phra Cinnaraj Buddha statue high above us and encouraged us to climb the many steps to the top. This was a bit like the climb to Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai as the handrail was the back of the Phayanak Naga snake.
Here is the gigantic Phra Cinnaraj Buddha statue, seated in the posture of giving blessings, is covered with gold mosaic and protected by an unusual shell-like structure.

Beside is the huge Chedi building, 69 meters high and 29 meters wide and is hollow. Another side the the temple wiharn.
From the hill top platform, we were see the rice fields in the foreground. It is from here that you get the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. It was definitely worth the long climb to the top.
Inside the wiharn, the veneration of main Phra Buddha statues and beautiful Mural painting and decoration.
Here is the cave of temple Wat Tham Sua, and the guardian at front. But its caves are now closed to the public.
At the past, dating from 1971, when a monk named Pasarigo used the hilltop caves for meditation and now temple Wat Tham Sua emerged till became tourist attractions.
