Beautiful large tower (prang) which is undergoing some restoration. Depending on the work, you may be permitted to climb inside to the inner chamber that once held treasures.

If you plan on visiting a lot of the older ruins, ask about the coupon book from the first ticket booth you visit at whichever ruin you plan to visit first. Each ancient ruin is 50 baht per, but if you ask for the booklet of coupons (that we weren't aware of until we were nearly done temple-touring) it gives... More

This temple is half-way between the museum and the archaeologicel park, many visitors just whisk past not knowing what they are missing. It is very ipressive, sitting in a well-kept garden, should be on any itinerary.
