Phanom Rung

Phanom rung

For history buffs who can't get enough of Ayutthaya with Sukhothai, we recommend the Buri Ram Historical Park. Phanom Rung is a complex of temples of Khmer architecture (similar to the one in Angkor, Cambodia).

Many temples built to celebrate the god Shiva, symbolizing the sacred Mount Kailas, have risen into the sky since the 10th century. They not only delight the eye, but offer a directly divine atmosphere accumulated over centuries.

Set out to uncover the ancient stories hidden in the walls of the sandstone shrines.
