  • Just entered the site I found myself in front of these imposing ruins. Really an impact effect, shame that some parts are badly worn, it is still an amazing site

  • The main central Wat. The area surrounding the Wat within the walls of the Wat are very tranquil and full of beautiful areas for picture taking or sketching.  more »
  • Is the largest and probably the most important of the entire Archaeological Park. You can get there easily by any of the entrances to the Park and you're hit the numerous buildings in different styles and materials. Amazingly beautiful the many Buddha statues, they are found by sitting and standing. A marvel! Easy to follow "logic", the brick walkway that leads the visitor around and within the entire Wat.
