Phanom Rung Historical Park (Prasat Hin Phanom Rung), a Khmer temple complex built in the 10th century, contains largely intact ruins built on the rim of an extinct volcano. When you go, first walk the long processional walkway leading to the main temple, but also look for a pavilion on the right of the walkway where the king once prepared for ceremonies. Once inside the pink sandstone sanctuary, you can admire carvings of Hindu gods and scene depictions from Ramayana. Explore the two libraries as well, where sacred Hindu texts are housed.

  • Not to be missed. Past the ugliness of the parking lot able to accommodate many buses of tourists, and have climbed a few steps, the site discovered in all its glory and breath. Gotta get there early, as for many sites to visit: you avoid the crowds of tourists and visit in the cool. Stay several minutes in height before going down on the large paved driveway leading to the sanctuary and enjoy the perspective. It was a great moment for myself. The garden offers beautiful visions with trees in bloom and perennials. The stones of the Prasat forced peace and you spend one hour of wonderful tour. Do not forget the area to visit also the Prasat Muang Tam about 7 kilometers from here (at the level of the sea, contrasting with the Phanom Rumg located on a hill from where you have a beautiful view of surrounding area). Must so go for it. SABAI Sabai.

  • 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
