Attraction Details :

This significant historic and archeological site contains a variety of important religious structures from many centuries ago. Attractions include a large 8-meter-by-3-meter Buddha image dating back 200 years, a pagoda (Chedi) that enshrines soil from a Buddhist holy site in India (where it is believed the Lord Buddha was born, was enlightened, gave his first sermon and reached nirvana) and more. There is also a“replica” of the Buddha’s footprint thanks to the support of one of Thailand’s previous prime ministers, PlaekPibulsonggram and his wife. The footprint ais commemorated during Thailand’s annual Songkran Festival.

Moreover, an antiques museum features Khmer items from Dong Mueang Toei Ancient Town, including stone inscriptions in the ancient Khmer alphabet. Nearby is the ancient town of Dong Mueang Toei itself, about 7 kilometers from Amphoe Kham KhuenKaeo and 1 kilometer south of Song Puey Village. The ruins of the ancient town, which flourished during the 7th century in the Chenla-Dvaravati period, are few, and include the foundations of a temple, a pond and the town wall. It was likely a satellite town of the Chenla Kingdom which later developed into the Khmer Empire.

Ban Song Pueai Archeological Site is situated 25 kilometers from Yasothontown, via Highway No. 23 (Yasothon-Kham KhuenKaeo-UbonRatchathaniRoad). Turn right for 10 kilometers.
