Visiting the Prasat Hin Phanom Wan in Khorat

Ancient Temples in Thailand
Prasat Hin Phanom Wan in Khorat (1998)

Photos were taken in 1998 when I did visit Thailand. At that moment there was a restoration project going on (organized & paid by France). The old Khmer temple is located about 10 km north of Khorat city. I did visit it again in 2010 and it now looks much better. Although having seen the restoration work I wonder if it looks now like it was originally build. Next to the old Khmer temple is a new modern temple called "Wat Phanom Wan". I just copied they name "Prasat Hin Phanom Wan" but the name is in that way a bit of double (language-wise). The Greater Khmer Kingdom did spread all over what we now call Thailand, South Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam. Most of the ancient Khmer temples can be found in the lower part of the Isaan. And I am trying to visit them all.
