It is located in Buriram Province, abourt 40km from Buriram in the Isan region of Thailand, and was built at a time when Khmer influences were significant in Srisaket. Phanom Rung is undoubtedly Thailand’s most impressive Khmer temples, and while not quite on par with the magnificence of Angkor Wat, but it holds its own against many of Cambodia’s lesser known temples. From the top sanctuary there are views over surrounding lands, which cross over the borders into Cambodia. The Phanom Rung festival is celebrated around April each year, when it coincides with the rare phenomenon where the morning sunrise aligns with the fifteen doorways of the temple’s upper sanctuary.
