 Description:   This is located at the foot of the hill, around 8 km from town, in Tambon Ko Phlapphla. It is a cave relating to Buddhism. Inside is a Buddha image relief sculptured on the cave wall. The image sitting in the European style, in the posture of preaching a sermon is in the style of art of the Dvaravati period (6th–8th centuries). Commonly known as Phra Phutthachai Tham Ruesi Khao Ngu, the image has a flat face, curved and connected thick eyebrows, protruding eyes, a flat nose, thick lips, large hair-curls, and a lotus bud halo. In between the ankles were Pallava scripts in Sanskrit reading ‘Punyakarmjara Srisamadhigupta’ which means Srisamadhigupta is the one who purifies his mind by his merit-making. This is an important trace of the Dvaravati art. Also found in the cave are many sandstone Buddha images in the Ayutthaya style of art. Other attractions in the area of the park include:-

Replica of Lord Buddha’s Footprint made of laterite. It is enshrined in the Wihan or image hall on the hilltop of Khao Ngu, at a height of around 128 metres.
Tham Fa Tho is around 250 metres to the west of Tham Ruesi Khao Ngu or the Ruesi Khao Ngu Cave. On the southern cave wall are sculptures of a large reclining Buddha image and the congregation of deities, and tree-shaped stucco, while a sculpture of the Two Disciples can be seen to the north.
