Wat Khao Angkhan
Wat Khao Angkhan in Buriram

Another popular tourist attraction in Buriram, Wat Khao Angkhan, just 20 kilometres from Phanom Rung, sits atop an extinct volcano and has an interesting mix of architecture from various periods. Sandstone boundary markers found here are proof of a past dating back to the 8th and 9th century. Some of the more recent buildings are reminiscent of the old Khmer architecture but with a more updated style. The main building features wall murals and Buddhist legends in English. Other features include an ordination hall surrounded by a wall of Buddha statues, a Chinese-style pagoda and a 29-metre reclining Buddha. An interesting site for families and a group of friends.
