|Prasat Hin Phanom Wan in Khorat (1998)|
Reposting from 2016 but photos were taken in 1998 when I did visit Thailand. At that moment there was a restoration project going on (organized & paid by France). This 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. The Greater Khmer Empire 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.
