“Blessed”

Prasat Si Khoraphum
Reviewed 13 June 2018 via mobile

When we arrived the temple it was closed so not able to enter. The best we could do on the day was to stand and be amazed and this ancient wonder.

Thank Simon M

An Angkor Wat mini model located in Surin, Thailand. Temple still remains good shape and some beautiful carvings left including Apsara, the Celestial Dancer very similar to Angkor Wat.

If you take a drive from Surin city to the east you will pass few temples and old ruins. Some are beautiful and diffetent from each other. You should pick three or four to stop and see.
I hired a driver for the day (surindream@gmail.com) . The most beautiful ruins we saw were of Pasat si khora. It is impressing unless you go to Cambodia. Then you can skip it. It is old ruins of colombian temple and you can see and imagin the way it might look in the times the Colombian ruled the area.
Quite impressive

This is a lovely, peaceful place on the west edge of Sikhoraphum, a few hundred metres north of the Surin to Si Sa Khet road. It was built by the Khmers as a Hindu temple around the tenth to twelfth centuries, but has been used and cared for by people of Buddhist faith for at least the last six hundred years. There isn't a lot to see as it comprises five, earth-quake ruined, brick towers on a large base built of laterite blocks, surrounded at some distance by a large fish pond. There are a few trees on the site, one of which has pillar capitals, etc, placed round its base. Why the place seems so particularly peaceful I don't know but it's one our favourites, both for ourselves and visiting friends. There are no facilities on site, apart from the public lavatory, but it's common to see travelling vendors in the car park and the food that they sell is always delicious. The fee is small - 30 to 50 baht - and more than justified by the care with which the site is maintained. We recommend a visit to this prasat very highly. (Most of the site is on the same level as the car park, but a set of five, steep steps must be climbed to get onto the plinth where the towers stand.)

Was staying in Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) and this temple was 1 of 3 sites that I planned to visit in eastern Thailand in my quest to hunt down the Angkorian temples. This was the furthest to the east (compared to Phimai and Phanom Rung) but it is easily reached by travelling on the Thai Railway to Sikhoraphum station. It is just 1km to the east of the station, you could walk of just take a motorbike taxi from outside the station (I paid 40 baht for 2 way. It's actually a considerably small temple and I finished exploring it in 15 minutes. Compare this to the 4 hour train ride I took. Nevertheless still a sight to see if you are a big fan of temple ruins, especially since it is 1 of the few Angkorian temples to be found in Thailand.
