or see all Travel categories


Muang Sema Historical Site is in Tambon Sema, about 37km from the city. From Amphoe Sung Noen Market go across the railway lines, past Ban Hin Tang to Sema 5km away. The Sema city plan is egg-shaped and is 3km wide and 4km long. You can still see evidence of city moats and some earth walls. The city flourished during the Dvaravati period and was built around the 12th Buddhist century. It grew until the 16th-17th Buddhist centuries when it came under Khmer influence. In the area are ruins made of laterite and sandstone and many artefacts have been unearthed here. The most interesting one is the reclining sandstone Buddha image and an old religious relic that is now in Wat Thammachak Semaram.
