Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat

This archaeologically important site was founded in the 12th century while Lopburi was under Khmer rule.


No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

The prang is the tallest in Lopburi and is distinct from its northeastern contemporaries by being so tall and slender. Built of laterite, much of the decorative work is eroded though some lintels and stucco work are still evident, allowing one to conjure up an image of what at one time must have been an impressive construction. The Thai Fine Arts Department restored it.
