Wat Yai Suwannaram, an ancient temple dating back to the Ayutthaya period, stands as a testament to the province’s rich historical heritage.

The annual cow racing event is a major highlight in Phetchaburi’s cultural calendar. This exhilarating sport is not just a competition but a celebration of local traditions, attracting visitors from near and far. The races provide a thrilling spectacle as competitors showcase their skills, and the event fosters a sense of community and shared heritage among participants and spectators alike.

Local officials and community leaders attended the event, emphasizing its importance to the cultural and social fabric of Phetchaburi. Their presence highlights the collective effort to preserve and promote the province’s unique traditions and attractions.
