A must place to visit.

The stair are really small, you can park the car on the back side of the Castle to make it's easier to climb.

Tip, don't be lazy like us and paying the extra 50 THB to go to the top car park. The walk from the main car park is short, and goes up some stunning steps and stone approach to the ruins. Very interesting and beautifully maintained. Go early and try avoid the "15 minute" selfie takers at the entry points. (... More

If you want to see quality Khmer architecture but don't want to go to Cambodia, then Buriram is the place to go to. Easily accessible by car and not too far to walk in the heat to see all the sites. Structures in excellent condition. Well worth a trip.

Well maintained and intricate sandstone carvings laid on top of the volcanic rock foundations means these very old structures are very stable and in good condition. These are a lot older than say Authaya's temples that are mainly sandstone. Popular tourist place but not too bad as the main sellers are in a separate area near the main (1st) car... More

Thailand's Department of Fine Arts deserves a lot of credit for restoring this remote temple complex over nearly two decades. The results are wondrous, not just for the buildings themselves, but also for the great processional entrance and terraces. An hour's drive from the BuriRam airport, this is not the easiest place to get to, so we were glad we... More

The last time we were in Phanomrung Rung Historical Park was close to 20 years ago. The place had drastically improved by the various infrastructure surrounded the historical site. The research center which provide information of its origin is a great addition. There are orderly signs posted throughout to protect the precious stonework. Overall the place is rather well maintained.... More

We, as somany touring Thailand have seen many wats/temple complexes. This is one you must see, if possible. The setting, the details exposed and just the experience is worthwhile. But, when you see mention of steep steps in the other reviews, be sure that you aconfident on narrow high steps. Als, be sure that you have studied about the sight... More

If you are staying in this area of Thailand, this is a must see. Many photo opportunities, there is a nice shop for food, drinks, icecream, and a row of souvenir stores also, which were very well priced.
