Located 559 km. from Bangkok and 46 km. from Udon Thani and covering an area of 3,859 sq. km., Nong Bua Lam Phu was once the site of an ancient city dating back more than 900 years ago (ancient artefacts from the area can now be seen in the Khon Kaen Museum).

Nong Bua Lam Phu previously formed a part of Udon Thani but was made a province in its own right on 1 December 1993.

King Naresuan the Great Shrine

Set in Nong Bua Public Park opposite the Provincial Hall, the Shrine commemorates the occasion when, in 1574, King Naresuan the Great of Ayutthaya led his troops to Nong Bua Lam Phu on the way to help the King of Hongsawadi in his fight against the city of Si Sattana Khanahut. From 25 January to 3 February, the city will hold its annual celebration to pay homage to the statue of King Naresuan the Great.

 

San Phra Wo Phra Ta

Standing beside Highway No. 210 (Nong Bua Lam Phu-Udon Thani), the shrine was built to honour Nong Bua Lam Phu's founder.

 

Wat Tham Klong Phen

Located at the foot of the Phu Phan mountain range, 15 km. from town on Highway No. 210 and then 2 km. off to the right, this once deserted ancient Khmer temple was, in 1958, turned into a meditation centre by Luang Pu Khao Ananyo, After his death in 1983, a museum was opened in his honour, displaying a wax figure of him as well as his personal effects. The temple itself stands in a picturesque and peaceful setting that is conducive to meditation.
