Shrine The name of this shrine literally means the Buddha's Footprints
which are housed in the Mondop located on the shelf of Suwan Banphot Hill
or Satchaphan Khiri Hill, Amphoe Phra Phutthabat 31 kilometers from the
provincial township area. From Saraburi one takes a left turn and travels
one kilometer before arriving at Amphoe Phra Phutthabat site. The footprint
was discovered in the reign of King Songtham of Ayutthaya. There are two
annual fairs celebrating the footprints: The first one falls on the 8th
waxing moon day to the 1st waning moon day of the 3rd lunar month; and
the second falls on the 8th waxing moon day to the 1st waning moon day
of the 4th lunar month.
