Si Mahosot Ancient City is a collection of historic ruins. The oval-shaped city was constructed in the Dvaravati Period (6th-13th centuries), and covers an area of nearly 280 acres.

Each year on 3rd Lunar month (Late of Feb or beginning of March), I have visited the Maka Puramee festival, make a merit and praying at following the Young Volunteer Guide to listen to the story of Lord Buddha's Footprint, Paying 50 baht for jump to tourist tram to see the remains of the city: moats, earthen walls, and many ancient Hindu and Buddhist temple sites.

coming here on Maka Puramee festival or Sat, Sun there are Young Guide to make a trip more interesting.

Worth to see if in the area, but hard to find.

The main attraction here at this relatively unknown location is the recently discovered Lord Buddha's footprints, carved a long time ago in the rock. According to the sign, they are the oldest replica footprints in Thailand, indicating Buddhism came here approximately in the 14th century (see photo). The excavated footprints are protected by a roof, and there is a small shrine there to pray. The old city here in the area has an old ancient deep moat, and there should be many more ancient things buried here in the area yet waiting to be discovered. There is no fee for entry, and a small temple grounds are nearby. It was a little hard to find, as we asked around with many locals. It ends up being about 3 kms south of the old city ruins with the moat.
