Visiting Prasat Hin Phi Mai in Phi Mai

Ancient Temples in Thailand
Prasat Hin Phi Mai in North-East Thailand

Reposting from 2017 but it must have been about 2014 that I was the last time at Phi Mai Historical Park. The historical park is located right in the middle of the modern town of Phi Mai and it is about 60 km north of Nakhon Ratchasima. Prasat Hin Phi Mai is part of the many ancient temples in Thailand and Cambodia that were build during the time of the Greater Khmer Kingdom. Prasat Hin Phi Mai is build in the 11th - 12th century. As said the historical park is located in the modern town and opposite the entrance is a nice air conditioned coffee-shop and of course some souvenirs shops. When you enter the park you see the entrance with the Naga bridge on your left hand side and on your right hand side toilets. Walking to the rear side of the park you will have a beautiful view over the complex and see the main Prang surrounded by the smaller Prang's. The complex is build in perfect symmetry which gives you a beautiful view when looking trough the doors. Of course the Buddha image (protected by the Naga) is not the original. On many places you will see beautiful wall reliefs like this one, most times above doors to bless all entering the building.

How to get there?

Just follow route 2 from  Nakhon Ratchasima in direction of Nong Khai and 50 km after Khorat you take rout 206 to Phi Mai. Just follow the signs for the historical park. It is easy to visit as it is easy to reach and there is even public transport from Khorat going to Phi Mai.
