Information

Prasat Phanom Wan is an interesting Khmer sanctuary located at Ban Makha,Pho, around 15 kilometres from the city on the Nakhon Ratchasima-Khon Kaen Road. It is believed that it was built in the 15th Buddhist century. Later during the 18th-19th centuries, a stone building was built over it. From inscriptions found at the site, it is known that the sanctuary was used in the Hindu religion and later became a Buddhist site. Although most of it is in ruins, there is a clear form present, like the square main pagoda facing east and a tiered pagoda in front, as well as a path linking the two structures.
