Visited a Thai family in a small village near Phimai and they took me there. What a great day. Most of my photos that day was focused on the family. I plan on making another trip here in October.
Text from Wikipedia
The Phimai historical park(Thai: ปราสาทหินพิมาย) protects one of the most importantKhmer temples of Thailand. It is located in the town of Phimai, Nakhon Ratchasima province.
The temple marks one end of the Ancient Khmer Highwayfrom Angkor. As the enclosed area of 1020x580m is comparable with that of Angkor Wat, Phimai must have been an important city in the Khmer empire. Most buildings are from the late 11th to the late 12th century, built in the Baphuon, Bayon and Angkor Wat style. However, even though the Khmer at that time were Hindu, the temple was built as a Buddhist temple, as Buddhism in the Khorat area dated back to the 7th century.
Want to thank Jaeb Na Ka and her family
