Phra Prang Sam Yot

Phra Prang Sam Yot, Thailand

Phra Prang Sam Yot is located on a mound on the west side of the railway near San Phra Kan. The compound comprises three prangs linked to one another by a corridor. It reflects the Bayon style of Khmer art during the 12th -13th century. It was made of laterite and decorated with beautiful stucco relief. The colonettes were engraved into a hermit, sitting with raised knees under the Ruean Kaeo shelter, which was typical of the Bayon style in the Khmer art. Moreover, there is a base inside the central prang. It was originally the location where a Buddha image was enshrined. The wooden ceiling was adorned with the painting of red asterisks.
