WatKuhasawan is located at Kuhasawan road, TambolKuhasawan, AmphurMuang, Phattalung. It is located at the Kuhasawan foothill (Kao HuaTak) with mountains surrounded in every side. Therefore, the villagers called this temple “WatKuhasawan” or “Wat Soong”. The origin of this temple was believed to be built during 1569 – 1590 in the reign of King Thammaracha of Ayuttaya Kingdom. There was no clear evidence when and who built it. Nowadays, WatKuhasawan is considered as one of the most important religious places in Phattalung since it was the first royal temple of the province and also the favourite temple of the King and the royal family.
Inside the temple area, there are many tourist attractions such as “Kuhasawan Cave” or “Blue Cave” or “Phra Cave” which there are 3 signatures of 3 Kings in front of the cave; King Rama V, King Rama VII and King Rama VIIII and the Queen. Inside the cave, there is a big Buddha statue and 37 small Buddha Statues around in order for the people to worship.
