Information

Located in the compound of Wat Chom Suthawat, at Moo 1, Tambon Mueang Thi, the Khmer Ruins was adapted in a later period like Si Khoraphum Khmer Ruins. Built from brick and cement, the Khmer ruins comprised of five stupas on the same base, with the biggest one at the middle and the rest at four corners. Today, one stupa at the corner is completely damaged. The main stupa can be accessed via stairs from four directions, but it was filled up with brick from the adaptation. It has three-layer roof with damaged peak. Muang Thi Khmer Ruins mirrors a popular construction style of Khmer in a certain period. According to Hindu belief, the middle stupa stands for Meru Mount, with four stupas at corner. There is not any inscription or art pattern to indicate construction time.
