Phimai is probably the most important Khmer-era historical site in Thailand, and is world renown. Rectangular in shape, the complex is 565 metres wide and 1,030 metres long. Constructed of sandstone and laterite, the structures are ornately carved and decorated. This is the only Khmer temple that faces south, all other such temples in Thailand face east. It is believed that the complex was constructed in the 11th century during the reign of King Suriyaworaman I.
