    Description
    A legend told by the people of Phetchaburi for centuries, was that Khao Luang Cave was a portal to a âtwilight zoneâ town where the inhabitants were made up of exclusively young maidens. One of the townâs most attractive attractions is Khao Luang Cave, regarded as the largest and most important in the province. It was often visited by the royal family as a meditation and picnic spot since the reign of King Rama IV in the mid 19th century. The cave chamber lies about 90 feet below ground and has numerous openings in the ceiling that bring in natural lighting. The limestone cave is festooned with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, and more than 180 Buddha statues are scattered around the caveâs 3 main chambers. Of these, the most impressive are the 12 foot high Buddha image and the 16 foot Reclining Buddha, both cast under the royal command of King Rama V.
