Situated in the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, the Phraya Nakhon Cave is one of the
mystical tourist spots of Thailand. The mystery of the place owes to the fact that the cave is a little hard to reach to and not a lot of visitors manage to reach the stunning site. The Phraya Nakhon Cave has two chambers with open ceilings to allow sunlight to penetrate through, rendering the place a soothing calmness. Adventurists, nature lovers, and trekkers are sure to have a fun time visiting the Phraya Nakhon Cave.
Apart from the sun shining and raindrops enlightening the interiors of the cave, the most alluring thing about the Phraya Nakhon Cave is the Kuha Karuhas Pavilion. Recognized as a symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, the pavilion was built by King Chulalongkorn (King Rama the Fifth) around the year 1890 AD, who too fell for the beauty of the cave. Since then, the Kuha Karuhas Pavilion has been visited by some of the prominent leaders of Thailand, such as King Prajadhipok (King Rama the Seventh) as well as the present King, King Bhumibol (King Rama the Ninth).
During your visit to theKuha Karuhas Pavilion, you can clearly observe the initials of both King Chulalongkorn and King Prajadhipok on the walls of the structure. Combination of sunshine falling directly on the pavilion and the awe-inspiring architecture is what gives you a view everyone likes to capture.
