They called that place as Mahathat temple and located in the city centre where they thought it's the most important place in the city.

Khao Luang Cave - Part 1

by Willettsworld

Located 5km north of Khao Wang, this cave houses a Buddha image cast by the royal command of King Rama V as a dedication to King Rama III and King Rama IV. These caves are well worth and contain a number of other Buddhas in a variety of stances. The best time to visit is around 17:00 when light through a hole in the ceiling falls directly on one of the Buddhas making for a superb photo. Legend has it that the entrance to the cave will send you through a twilight zone to a cave inhabited by young maidens! Beware of the monkeys outside and try and grab a stick or something for security. I took a bike taxi here from the road junction by the City Pillar and he waited for me at the caves and took me back into town after I had visited.
