The Sa Kaeo-Sa Kwan ponds, situated within the provincial city,
are believed to contain holy water that was formerly used in the ‘Tue
Nam Piphat Satthaya Ceremony’ conducted in the Thonburi era. During that
time, King Borom Mahakasutsuk stopped to rest by the 2 ponds. He used
the water from the ponds for his personal use and for the ceremony, thus
leading to the names ‘Glass Pond-Gift Pond’. Presently, both ponds were

Covering 3 districts, the Pang Sida National Park consists of
lush forests, mountains, and meadows. It is the source of origin of many
water tributaries that eventually flow into the Bang Pakong River. Most
interesting of all, it has a pond inhabited by freshwater crocodiles.
The park features many natural attractions, but the highlights
include 2 waterfalls. The Pang Sida Fall is not that tall, but
the cascade falling into the wide pool below is a spectacular sight.
Downstream from the Pang Sida Falls, the waters cascade over the 10-m
high Pa Takian (Lamp Cliff) Fall, the last waterfall of
this tributary. The torrential cascade creates a thunderous noise as it
hits the pool below.
H.R.H. the King initiated the establishment of the muddy Tha
Krabark Reservoir under the Royal Project to develop the
irrigational system in the flatland areas at the foot of the mountain.
Nearby is the 3-tiered Tha Krabark Waterfall, with each level
having a pool and separated by a distance of 400-500 meters.
