This was my third visit to the Phanom Rung historical site and I get equally amazed every time. A beautiful and well preserved example of Khmer architecture. Certainly worth a visit when in the Prakhon Chai area.

A 12-13th century temple built by hand and with carvings, amazing architecture, unbelievable to think how it was built 700 years ago so high on the mountain and still standing.Being off the tourist trail it does not get nearly as many visitors Most of the visitors are Thais with a sprinkling of foreigners like me.Take a brochure from the entrance...

The temple at Phanom Rung is actually a collection of old cultures blended into one place over time. There is a distinct Khmer style but Buddist and Hindu can also be seen. The site was located along part of the Silk Road trading routes and saw some of earliest exchanges of culture in the region. There is an annual festival... More

I decided to visit Buriram after reading the review of Phanom Rung Historical Park. I got my private taxi driver from the bus station nearby one day prior to my intended visit. I was quoted 1,800 bath for three places ( Phanom Rung, Prasat Hin Mueang Tum and Khao Kradong Forest Park ). You could get cheaper private non taxi... More

This khmer style -temple is very nice, located on top of a hill. I spend 2 hours there, and enjoyed the garden and the view. The place is qiet before 10 am but if you go later it will be crowded.

The temple was built between the 10th to the 13th century on top of a dormant volcano and is dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva. Construction of the buildings in the temple complex happened in four different phases and hence follows different styles making it a sort of time capsule capturing the Khmer architectural styles in different time periods.

I visited Angkor Wat a couple of weeks ago and this was a bit of a let down in one sense, it is distinctly smaller. But then Angkor is the largest religious monument in the world. I would suggest if you are interested, go to Phanom Rung first if you are going to do both. Having said that there was... More
