After a couple of days in Buriram, we headed over to Korat (Nakhon Ratchisima) and got a chance to visit yet another Khmer ruin-Phimai. This structure is a Mahayana Buddhist temple, which is odd as the Khmer were primarily Hindu at the time (although images of Hinud deities were added later). And, due to the resemblance, it believed to be a prototype for Angkor Wat.
Another naga serpent at the entrance.
From Korat city center, there are buses to Phimai running every 30 min. from 6AM-10PM. I was in a group of three so we took a taxi. For more travel info, check here
Also, some video I shot of the grounds:
