    This temple, which is located outside the north-east of the old city, was founded by Thao Suranari and her husband in 1827. Her ashes are interred here along with a statue which is very similar in design to her memorial near the Chumphon Gate. The modern bot was built in 1967 and resembles a Chinese junk boat.

    Prasat Hin Phanom Wan , Korat

    I haved live in Korat all of my life but just few weeks ago, had a chance visiting this ruins of ancient Khmer site. It is another Prasat Hin of Korat as you may have heard only the famous one Prasat Hin Phimai and it is about 60 kms out of town. This one is at the ege of the town around 15 min drive. I drove up there, well no one, no visitors, no tourist at all, This small ruins of ancient Khmer architectural work piece called Prasat Phanom Wan, believed it was built in the 15th Buddhist century. Even thought it's small place but I enjoyed take a stroll inside and the area all around, temple and local living area.

    To get there, take highway no 2, when pass Jho ho junction, then drive another few kms and turn right into Tumbon Ban Pho, drive up for 5 kms you will see the site.

    OK, some pictures here from Pimai and the Burial Site and a temple. Not to bore you guys but most information can be read here from other members. They have detailed description. But walking into Pimai gives me a feeling of calm..and self -reflection... Cost - 100B entry.

    As the old and important city,you can find so many shophouses in old style.Some built from wood and some built from plaster decorated with stucco.Unluckily,some have changed to be a new shop by refurnishing.
