Interesting Khmer style ruins

Interesting Khmer style ruins outside Wat Kamphaeng Laeng. Great photography opportunities, but little else left to do except walk around. Takes about 10-15 mins.

We visited the grounds of this Wat as part of our self-guided walking tour of the town - with a focus on visiting a range of Buddhist temples. This Wat was memorable, not for its modern temples but for the ancient remains of the wall (around 30 feet high) from the Khmer period, some of which contain shrines. This was... More

The place had a handful of temple buildings and it only took a few minutes to read the information and take pictures. However, it was very nice to see some really ancient temple ruins. Don't get me wrong... all the new and perfectly maintained temples in Thailand are really spectacular, but seeing something that old just gives a stronger feeling... More

This is perhaps the most memorable wat in town, because it contains the ruins of a Khmer temple from the late 12th or early 13th. This is not a particularly large or well-preserved temple but is the southernmost Khmer temple in Thailand, marking the furthest extent of the Angkor Empire. The laterite remains are quite dilapidated but you can still... More

Like so many places we visited in Phetchaburi, this place was yet another delightful surprise. Sadly much of the original structure has been destroyed but there was still enough for us to be able to imagine a little of how splendid it would have been

This is well worth visiting, and can be added on to a visit to Hua Hin or Cha Am. It is a temple first built in 1200, and is a fine example of a Khmer style laterite temple. While some of it is in ruins, it is still a functioning temple. Add a visit followed by a few hours on... More

The best of the temples in town for me. 12th century Khmer ruins in stone as opposed to the other more modern temples. There are five tower-like shrines facing east, west, north and south with the main shrine in the middle. There are information boards next to each one They are set in a quiet open area and makes a...
