PHIMAI HISTORICAL PARK
Within the Park is the Phimai Sanctuary, the largest and one of the most important Khmer historical sites in Thailand. It consists of ornately carved sandstone and laterite structures. The most special characteristic of the sanctuary is that it is the only one that faces south while the others usually face east. This is probably because it was built to face the route that the Khmers traveled from the capital of the empire, to the south of Phimai.
DAN KWIAN POTTERY OTOP VILLAGE
Dan Kwian Pottery Villa is noted for its unique pottery products which are widely used for interior and outdoor decoration. The uniqueness of Dan Kwian clay is its durability, pliability and rusty color, especially when it is combined with attractive designs.
WAT KHAO CHAN NGAM
Wat Khao Chan Ngam is a tourist attraction with prehistoric painting as its highlight. The drawings are situated behind the temple, where visitors have to walk through a rock garden and peaceful forest for 150 meters. The drawings, painted by an agrarian community approximately 3,000 or 4,000 years ago, are displayed on a sandstone cliff, featured people and animals and show humans way of life and daily routine such as attire and hunting in ancient times.
WAT THAMMACHAK SEMARAM
An original religious site of the Dvaravati period, Wat Thammachak Semaram keeps so many artefacts here starting from bronze Buddha statues, fire clays, glass beads, fire clay looms, including a stone inscription tables. These items are moved to the Phimai National Museum though. The highlight here is a huge reclining Buddha sandstone statue, which is aged for a thousand years. Built in 657 AD, the gigantic tatue is 13.30 meters long and 2.80 meters high. There is another ancient sandstone Buddhist symbol in the form of cartwheel as well.
