Wat Sawang Arom or Wat Tham Si Thon  is located on the rocky ground of a hill. It is shady with trees and a small stream flows through it. The Ubosot (ordination hall) stands on a giant boulder. Down below, a reclining Buddha image is housed for the people to pay homage to.
From here, a view ofLaoscan be seen in the distance. It is one of the main temples of Nong Khai province, covering an area of 40 rai. According to history, the area used to be the dwellings of Pak Khat villagers, who migrated from Ban Pak Kluai, Pak San district of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
In the past, the area was a wild jungle and full of a variety of wild animals, whereas in each year, there were monks coming on austere practices because the place was so serene that was suitable for Dhamma practice. Later, the head monk, Don Inthasaro or Luangpu Don, who is respected by Pak Khat villagers, built and developed the temple, respectively.
It was assumed that the name of Wat Si Thon came from the fact that the temple is located near Peng Chan Nakhon Rat town, which was ruled by Thao Si Thon, according to legend.  To get there: From downtown, take Highway No. 212 to Amphoe Pak Khat, there will be a junction on the right and go for about 500 metres to the temple.
