Phra Nakhorn Khiri Historic Park – Phetchaburi, Thailand

Phra Nakhorn Khiri Historic Park (Khao Wang) in the Muang District of Phetchaburi Province is a historical site located on top of 3 summits of a mountain overlooking Petchaburi city, with the highest peak at 95 meters. The villagers call this mountain “Khao Wang” (Palace Hill).  To visit the park, you can take a cable car ride up to the entrance, or enter the back-way and climb up the steep hill.

Phra Nakhorn Khiri has various throne halls, villas, temples and other buildings which are mostly of western architecture in the neo-classical style combined with a few in the Chinese style. The Department of Fine Arts uses parts of the palace as a museum displaying antiquities from the reigns of King Rama IV and King Rama V.

The grounds are beautiful, and definitely worth a visit!
