  • It took years to build this shrine in central Surin, but worth the wait. It is always clean. Not always as much shade from the sun or shelter from Rain, but a very nice place to bring visitors to...  more »
  • When I read it was a pillar, I thought it was just column, but you can actually go inside and pray. It is an interesting mix of modern and Khmer architecture symbols. It is possible to park nearby...  more »
  • It is located in the middle of the town and seems that it is sacred to the local people. There are lots of local people offering prayers, flowers and burning incense. The design of the outer structure is very unique where we hardly see in other parts of Thailand. Inside the shrine, there is a circular structure with a pillar in the middle. The Head of the pillar has four faces that resemble Buddha’s face painted with yellow golden color. The walls inside the shrine are beautifully painted. I spent few minutes to offer prayer and also made some donation. This shrine is must visit in this locality. Time of travel: August 2018 Entry fee: free
