The prasat has had some work done since the last time I visited. The main sanctuary has had its roof repaired. The Buddha inside the sanctuary is very intact and cared for by the monks in the temple next door. It is quiet,not many tourists. If you have a few spare hours in Korat city,well worth the 30 minute trip to get there.The restaurant on the left just outside the entrance going back to Korat is worth a visit.

Awesome place. Just stumbled upon it on the way to a friends place. Girlfriend was super excited.
Great and quite place
Build around the BUDDHIST 16-17th century. Used to be HINDU shrine transform to BUDDHIST place later.
Small but worth seeing if it's not too much out of the way to get to..
