Getting Your Khmer On At Phimai Historical Park In Thailand

Angkor without the crowds. In Northeast Thailand, near the city of Khon Kaen, is an impressive example of Khmer temple architecture. The site is located at the terminus of an old Khmer highway, with the other end being at some place called Angkor Wat.

The classic approach.

Temple detail work, definitely a nod to what's found in Cambodia.

View from the back.

Classic nasty naga, the multi-headed snake god. Always good for a railing end. Blocks waiting for re-assembly.

Without many tourists, one can almost imagine being at the temple during its heyday. At least until it's time to get a bottle of water and a latte.
