There was nice shops etc and restaurants the the building themselves were... More

I went here during just after the Thai songkran festival in april the temple was very busy at that time due to it being a national holiday period but the ruins were beautiful and very very old but be prepared to walk quite a bit of stairs due to it being quite high up, well it is worth a visit,...

First thing you have to know about this lovely place. It's far out and far away, so there's no regular public transport here. We came by car. There's 3 gates to start your visit: I recommend gate 1 as it is the main gate - car park and shops - and you also have to walk along the beautiful long... More

If you are into old Khmer temples, then this place is worth a visit. Built on an extinct volcano, so expect to climb some steps. We hired a truck from Honey Inn and went there in the early morning. We were lucky that we were the only two people in the temple during that time.

A great place to visit and a great example of Khmer architecture. There is so climbing involved so a good pair of shoes helps but is not necessary Easiest access to the temple is via car park 3 If in the area a must

The best historical sandstone khmer castle in thailand. Just 1 hours drive from Buriram city and 15 mins walk to the top of the hill. There are also other sandstone castles nearby, but i would recommend this place if you have to choose one.
