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.

    Essential may also because of architectural style might not be sure to compare the entire system seems more attractive than the Vielzahls of the Wats in Ayutthaya. If you have no time for both, this one is recommended. Also, because it is not so crowded.

    Just an hour and 15 minutes by road from Korat, a visit to this small Khmer style site it is. The van making service from terminal 2, leaving every hour for Phimai leave travelers almost on the doorstep from the entrance of the Archaeological Park can be visited in about an hour (something more or something less). The entire hotel is well maintained, preserved with care and surrounded by a beautiful garden. The entrance ticket costs 100THB. Released at the end of the visit, turning left and along the perimeter of the site, you get close to the River, where on the right is an interesting Museum, which relates to the temple enjoyed just before. Even here, entrance to 100THB.
