  • Glad I made the trip here. It's nice to experience and feel the history behind this place. Good to see that it is maintained. Thank you. 
  • Khmer Sanctuary built in 1100 in the nature just 18kilometers from the city of Buriram. Easy access with bus or car. 
  • Very interesting ruins. For older people, the many stairs could however be to the problem because a small rise is necessary from the front. Also at the should being very careful because the stairs of course is not our present standards :) go down The trip is clear to recommend. At the counter, there's a combination ticket for a more temple complex nearby. Tip: take enough water.

  • I went here 15 years ago and it was really nice but people don't realize easier that we have to careful about this place :) now it's a bit late to keep the beautiful building still look amazing as before but still! I love this place anyway :)
  • Great day trip & well worth a look for the amazing views. About 1 hour by car from Buriram along good paved roads. There's food & drink available on site. Entry costs 200B for foreigners but this also gets you entry to prasat muang tam temple which is 10 minutes away.
  • Really amazing. Temple in the nature.
  • I turned at the doorstep because of their race dependant pricing. I'm well aware that this is common in thailand, but I just can't support that kind of businesses. Therefore I choose to boycott, and I wouldn't encourage anyone to visit this place.
  • Good
