The important historical site here is “Lord Buddha’s Footprint” that was found on a stone panel near Suwan Banpot Hill or Satchaphanthakhiri Hill. Lord Buddha’s Footprint measures 21 inches wide, 5 feet long, and 11 inches deep.

The footprint was discovered during the reign of King Songtham of Ayutthaya. The footprint had 108 religious aspects, so he commanded a temporary Mondop be built to cover the footprint and it has been refurbished several times.
The Mondop is a square building, has a seven-tier castle roof and each is roofed with green glazed tiles.
