Attraction Details

Phanom Rung Historical Park or Prasat Hin Phanon Rung is a key location in Buriram, Thailand. It has many important archaeological sites, which are located at the top of an extinguished volcano 350 meters above seal level.


On this now dormant Volcano you will see incredible Khmer architecture, which is assumed to have been built in the 15th - 18th Buddhist century. Here you can marvel at the giant stairways of red stone and sandstone. The long story of Prasat Hin Phanom Rung is part of Thailand history. Don’t miss out on this place when you get to visit Thailand.
