Prasat Muang Tam
Prasat Muang Tam information
In the little village of Khok Meuang, the restored Khmer temple of Prasat Meuang Tam is an ideal bolt-on to any visit to Phanom Rung, which is only 8km to the northwest. Dating back to the late 10th or early 11th century and sponsored by King Jayavarman V, this is Isan’s third most interesting temple complex in terms of size, atmosphere and the quality of restoration work. The whole complex (once a shrine to Shiva) is surrounded by laterite walls, within which are four lotus-filled reservoirs, each guarded by whimsical five-headed naga .
