Tracing back into the complex state societies in the Chao Phraya basin and the breezy sub-district of U Thong in Suphan Buri appeared to have had played a significant role. The findings of ancient clay moats that made up for the natural defence of this ancient town was followed by the unearthing of evidence of old communities – Neolithic axe, beads, ceramic and metal wares. Those all proved that U Thong was once quite a prospering place.
U Thong is home of many much-revered temples. For example, Luangpho U Thong – the enshrined carved from- stone Buddha image, the century-old Wat Khao Thiam and Wat Tham Seua for sacred amulets. Also prominent for U Thong is the rich nature. This is the place to wander into Puhangnak stone garden and make a botanical stop at the U Thong Garden Centre. Or perhaps arrange yourself a homestay experience to soak in the unique culture.
