    Sra Keaw

    A sacred pond where built in 11 Buddhist centuries or Dvaravati period. At the border of pond carved the sacred animals which connected to water and wealthy ,such as elephants, naga , Makara (legend animal which mixed of elephant, fish & crocodile) surrounded about 41 pictures.I 've studied about the carving there and found that some pics have got an influence from Indian Art (around Gupta-Post Gupta period ).

    You can walk down the pond to see the carving all around.

    If you cannot see how picture are ,there 're a remodelling in small panel at the bound of pond.
