Prasat Sikhoraphum, Surin ปราสาทศรีขรภูมิ สุรินทร์

Prasat Sikhoraphum, Surin ปราสาทศรีขรภูมิ สุรินทร์
The Sikhoraphum Stone Sanctuary is a group of five brick prang, finely constructed, standing on the same base. The prasat was formerly known as Prasat Ban Ragnang and has been the symbol of Surin Province. The sanctuary was constructed according to Hinduism beliefs and dated back to the 12th century A.D.
The influence of Hinduism can be seen from the carved lintel found in the central tower, which depicts Shiva performing the cosmic dance. Around 15th century A.D., the sanctuary had been renovated and become a Buddhism stupa. Standing in front of the sanctuary at a certain place, viewers can see the 5 towers simultaneously.
