Mueang Tam Stone Sanctuary : Buriram, Thailand

Mueang Tam Stone Sanctuary’s main structure is a square layout with five brick pagodas built on the same foundation, enclosed by two walls. The four doorways are perpendicular to each other and built of sandstone with delicate designs.

The inner wall is made of sandstone, a long, narrow continuous corridor called Rabiang Khot while the outer wall is made of laterite. Hindu tales are recounted on lintels that adorn doorways and the main pagoda.

Another highlight between the walls is the four large pools whose edges feature divine serpent designs, resting the heads at the pool corner. The beauty of this Khmer site is second only to that of Phanom Rung.
