Wat Phra Phuttabaht
Aug 2018 • Friends
It's a great peaceful place within an easy drive from Saraburi town and it's not too crowded even on the weekend. If you don't have a car you could get a tour that takes in a few places in a day, including somewhere like Wat Phra Phuttachai which is even nearer to Saraburi town.

A beautiful temple
Aug 2018 • Family
The temple is between Saraburi and Lopburi.
A very impressive temple contains a Buddha footprint.
Another temple contains a metal elephant alongside which people kneel and pray. It is worth asking locals what they are doing.
I am so pleased that I made the journey to this temple.

Mondop of Lord Buddha footprint.
Sep 2017
Just only the main Mondop, Same as in Grand palace is valuable to drop here. Phra Phutthabat temple was built in 1624 (B.E. 2168) by King Songtham of Ayutthaya, after a hunter named Pram Bun found a large depression in the stone, resembling a huge footprint. This temple is the 1 of 6 great royal temple of Thailand. the biggest festival is in July for "Flower and Candle offer for Buddhist lend"

Visited yesterday for its annual "Tak Bat Dok Mai=Flower Offering" ceremony for Buddhist Lent
Jul 2015 • Friends
Yesterday (July 31, 2015) was the last day of the annual "Tak Bat Dok Mai" festival fow which the Wat is most famous nationwide. It took almost 1 hr to squeeze my car into one of the "free parking lots" arranged by the organizer, which however proved to be located pretty far from the Wat's main venue - almost 1km walking was required. In that way, the festival was packed by lots of merit-making people, w/everyone carrying the trademark white & yellow flowers to offer to the parading monks and the flower-clad Buddha image mount. The people's enthusiasm was of the most impressive kind, among anything I've ever experienced in my 13-year stay in Thailand.

Beautiful temple in a beautiful setting.
Jun 2015 • Couples
We rode our scooters from Lopburi to this temple along the busy freeway so we were a bit frazzled and hot by the time we got here, about 20km from Lopburi, about half an hr on our scooters. The temple is set in a beautiful setting with cool gardens and a very impressive entrance. It is obviously a very special place for Thai people as there were a lot of people there, which added to the whole ambience of the place. The giant Buddha footprint is inside a very impressive Wat. The grounds and temple are beautifully maintained. There are lots of stalls and good toilet facilities. Combine with a trip to the nearby lake and peacock temple on the way back to Lopburi.

A striking Temple with a notable Buddha footprint
Jul 2014 • Couples
Wat Phra Putthabat is situated approximately halfway between Saraburi and Lopburi, about a kilometre off Highway 1. It is very well signposted and you can't miss the impressive Avenue leading to the Wat.
The main Temple is striking and is built around what is regarded as an exceptional example of a Buddha footprint.
The Wat is set on a the side of a small hill with an impressive, wide gentle stairway that leads to the 'terrace' on which the pavilion is built. While not large it serene, ornately decorated and very interesting. It is well worth a visit if you are in the Saraburi area or travelling via Lopburi.
The area is landscaped and shady; there are several reasonable, small restaurants and good toilet facilities near the carpark.
