Come here if you go to Phanom Rung.

If you like the Prasat hin Phanom Rung's art, you may like this place too. It is near of that place. In my opinion, there are more tree and make you feel fresh than the other.

Just a few kilometres from Phnom Rung I the beautiful site of Prasat Muang Tam, a temple from the 10th to 12th centuries. Best enjoyed after Phnom Rung in the late afternoon. The outer walls and four gopuras entrances are highly coloured and decorated with Hindu lintels. In the inner sanctuary the five towers have crumbled but the lintel above... More

One of the most impressive ruined temples I have ever seen. There are a wide selection of local restaurants and gift shops, and buddhist monks nearby.

Please don't leave the area without visiting this site. It still gives me - after 3 visits over 15 yrs - an "Angkor"feeling ... pun intended! I can only hope that 1 day it can be restored in the way Phanom Rung was restored, which will make it in my opinion even more popular than the latter ! A tip... More

A glorious, easily accessible, compact site that should be on everyone's bucket list, Prasat Hin Mueang Tum is more commonly transliterated as Prasat Muang Tam if you are trying to search for it (this name is used by Wikipedia, the guidance literature from the ticket office, Google maps, etc). It is part of the Khmer temple group spread across this... More

This castle is really small compare to Pranom rung Castle but it's still worth to spend a time for visit.

Not far from Prasat Hin Phanom Rung, another Khmer style temple from around the 12th century. Also kept in great condition.

Smaller and not as grand as neighboring Prasat Phanom Rung, Muang Tam is still impressive in its own right. Renovated except for the collapsed central tower, its expansive plazas with their unique pools show the versitility of the ancient Khmer builders. The site has fewer services and outlets for food and souvenirs than Phanom Rung.

On a road trip in southern Isaan found this lovely quiet temple complex. Normally a 100 foreigner fee but waived due to the King's passing during January 2017. Build on volcanic rock, this temple complex is in great condition, especially considering it is much older than those at Authaya. Intricate sandstone carving on archways and lovely ceremonial pools (4) make... More
