    Prasart Sdok Kok Thom ,Khmer sanctuary.

    by pattayaraj Updated May 21, 2006

    The biggest Khmer sanctuary in Eastern Thailand. Another name is Prasart Muang Prao. Built in 15-16 Buddhist Centuries.From 2 inscriptions which found in this area,one describe about King Jayavarman IV (Koh Ker Art style). He dovoted slaves to protection the Siva Linga.The second one describe about King Udayadittayavarman II devoted a land and slave to build the sanctuary for Satasiva Brahmin who was his teacher. For the building,it built by sand stone and laterite in Khmer Art (Kleang-Papuan style).All buildings faces to the Eastern side which believed as the power direction.Inside the main building housed Siva Linga,so this sanctuary donated for Siva God.

    I 've been there when I was in Univ ,at that time it was just a ruin and everythings seem to be fall to a ground .Later,It was renovated by anastilosis system or reconstruction by Fine Art Department and it is going to be the same as the old time.

    How to go : hiring a tuk tuk from Aranyaprathet for 500 B.
