Its lintel features Lord Krisna killing a lion in Bapuan Khmer art. The art on this stupa is quite similar to many Khmer ruins found in Isaan. Stone carvings on door arches and windows remain very clear. Legend says this stupa was built by women, who competed with the men group that built Phra That Phu Pek. According to its design and art, it is assumed to be from 11-12th century.Annual celebration of Phra That Jeng Veng is held from 11th-15th date of waxing moon in March.
