Official description

Ku Phra Kona comprises of three east-facing brick prangs lying in a north–south orientation, standing on a single sandstone base. They are surrounded by a boundary wall, with entrance pavilions or Gopuras in four directions, all were made from sandstone.The central prang was renovated in 1874 by plastering and making the roof into tiers. Each tier has niches of Buddha images in four directions. The front of the central prang was a ‘wihan’ of the Buddha’s footprint, decorated with the original six-headed Naga. The other two prangs were also renovated, but they remain in their usual styles, unlike the central prang which has been considerably changed.
