Khao Nang Phanthurat Khao Nang Phanthurat

Khao Nang Phanthurat is a vital attraction either for its natural resources or its historical background. It is believed to be part of the folk literature titled ‘Sang-Thong’. As the story goes, ‘Nang Phanthurat’ is a giantess who adopted ‘Phra-Sang’ as her child while disguising herself as human. One day, Phra-Sang entered the prohibited district, bathed himself in the golden pool, grabbed a disguise costume and other magical items, and then flew away. When returned and could not find her child, the giantess went after and begged him to come back without success. The giantess grieved until death subsequently. After she died, Phra-Sang arranged cremation and the giantess’s body turned into a mountain. As a result, people have called the mountain ‘Khao Nang Phanthurat’ until the present.
