    Ho Nang Usa (Phu Phrabat Historical Park, Udon Thani)

    Ho Nang Usa



    Ho Nang Usa (Thai: หอนางอุสา) is the most impressive rock formation at Phu Phrabat Historical Park (Thai: อุทยานประวัติศาสตร์ภูพระบาท) Udon Thani, Thailand.

    Most of the bizarre rock formations in the park are featured in a legend about a king (Phaya Kong Phan), his stunningly beautiful daughter (Nang Usa), a hermit (Rishi Chantra) and a love-struck prince from another kingdom (Tao Baros). Ho Nang-Usa is said to be the tower where the beautiful princess was forced to live by her overprotective father.

    This is a fabulous picture.

    I have seen this formation in many photos before, but never as it has been presented above.

    And somehow the presence of a monk always adds depth to any photo.

    Good work again Guava.

    A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it certainly is nice to have the story to go along with it. Thanks for researching the background of this unique formation, as well as the enchanted photo.

    Reminds me of Rapunzel.

    A very nice story.. It is really true that nobody can explain when and where " LOVE " is concerned. The picture is quite interesting, so difficult to built something that is made of rocks.. 'hope to see that when i go back to Thailand.. thanks guava for such information..(",)
