About Wat Khiriwong
Wat Khiriwong is a large temple at the northern end of Nakhon Sawan town and the most visited tourist attraction in the area. The temple is similar to many other temples in Thailand except for the large magnificent Prajulamanee Pagoda at the top of Daowadung Hill, from which there are 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. Prajulamanee Pagoda is the town’s most recognisable landmark visible from most parts of the centre of Nakhon Sawan. We recommend that you take a taxi or own vehicle up to the pagoda as it is a long steep walk from the entrance to Wat Khiriwong to the pagoda.
The Prajulamanee Pagoda is believed to have been built on site of a 14th Century chedi. The 4 storey pagoda is covered in gold paint and topped by a large golden chedi. Visitors can enter the pagoda and ascend to the roof for the best views of Nakhon Sawan. Inside the pagoda there is an interesting collection of Buddha statues and shrines. The Prajulamanee Pagoda is open daily to visitors from 07:00 to 18:00 and admission is free.
