I visit this place more than ten times in my life. This is the amazing human made form natural resources. I am wondering how could human can be done this without the machinery. This is proof that we have develop something called sciences since that era. Super cool place to see sun through 15 gates!!! Please check out the schedule.

These ruins are well worth a visit. A lot of step's to climb but the view is spectacular. It does get very hot but thankfully there are trees around so you can just sit and relax.

Prasat Hin Phanom Rung is a place you must see if you are in the Buriram area. The ruins are in good condition and the view is great.

If you are into temples and history this place is a must for you I was blown away by the place in fact I just sat there for a hour just taking it all in, if you have a disability you might struggle and parking in the top car park might help, take a picnic and sit under the shade... More

visiting Phanom Rung gives you two choices of parking your car, entering the park. But when you take the upper parking lot you'll enter the temple complex from the back, without seeing the stairs, the Naga-bridge, the walkway. Therefore, to really see Phanom Rung you need to take the lower parking lot, to climb some stairs, walk the walkway, cross... More

I agree with all the five star remarks. I visited Angkor in January and I am certainly glad I made the effort to Phanom Rung. Korat to Nang Rong on a local bus. Another local bus dropped me around 8 km away from the site (I thought the bus passed the site so this was a shock). From there I... More

not as big as Ankor Wat but beautiful and almost without any people you could also continue to PRASAT MUANG TAM

The setting is beautiful and the staircase is imposing. Well worth the trip and a day tour. Not easy to climb for people who are a bit unsure on their feet but manageable for most. Great restoration and good explanations. Much smaller than Angkor Wat but well worth it.
