Must see · Historic Site · Religious Site
View one of the most significant Khmer historical sites in the country at Phimai Historical Park, a 900-year-old park housing an impressive temple. The 10th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple features numerous Hindu deities in its design. Look for spiritual figures carved into the stone shrine and the replica stone sculpture of Angkor King Jayavarman VII. Be sure to check out the museum at the entrance for a full explanation on the attraction. When you go, remember to take sun protection and plenty of water, because shade is hard to find. To plan Nakhon Ratchasima vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
