The 10th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple features numerous Hindu deities in its design. Look for spiritual figures carved into the stone shrine and the replica stone sculpture of Angkor King Jayavarman VII. Be sure to check out the museum at the entrance for a full explanation on the attraction. When you go, remember to take sun protection and plenty of water, because shade is hard to find.

  • Definitely awesome. You can get a bus to this place from Korat for about 50 Baht per person one way. You will need to buy a return ticket in town at the local bus station and wait across the street at the mini-mart for the return bus. Easy to get to. Free entry. Beautiful views. We were lucky because it was a little overcast. It's very sunny and bright, so you'll need to set your exposure to a lower value on your camera if you're going to take pictures. Don't miss this adventure!
  • Take time out to visit this magnificent site. Phimai is an example of classical Khmer architecture. Ancient Khmer architects were best known for their superior use of sandstone over the traditional bricks and laterite architectures. Sandstone is used on the visible outer layer. The temple marks one end of the Ancient Khmer Highway from Angkor. Another positive point being less crowded than Angkor Wat. You can actually get photographs without any people in the frame area.
  • Prasat Hin Phi Mai or Phi Mai Rock Castle- is on #UNESCO’s tentative list for consideration as future World Heritage Site. It is located in Phimai, Nakhon Ratchasima Province. It is interesting and charming. You can get more information about the castle and its history by visiting the information center located nearby.
  • With the same rectangular plan as Angkor Wat, the temple marks one end of the Ancient Khmer Highway from Angkor. That said, if you're in the Northeast, you should definitely visit these ruins. A stunning example of classic Khmer architecture in Thailand. Phimai town itself is pretty cool too. Check it out. Free admission for Thais, nominal entrance fee for foreigners.
