Ku Ka Sing and Ku Pnon Rakang Khmer-Style
Ruins in Roi-Et, Thailand - HD Video
[HD videos below]
It is very unusual to have 900-1,000-year old Khmer-style ruins in
Thailand to yourself, but at Ku Ka Sing there are very few
tourists, and at Ku Pnon Rakang just a 3-minute drive away, even
Ku Ka Sing, Roi-Et, Thailand.
This makes the ruins very popular with film crews and
the like, as they pretty much have the place to themselves.
Both Ku Ka Sing and Ku Pnon Rakang are
located in Ban Ku Ka Sing in the Kaset Wisai District of Roi-Et
Although the ruins are
quite remote, they are free of charge to visit, and if you are
not too far away then they are definitely worth the trip.
History on the two monuments is quite murky with
some conflicting stories. Some say that that Ku Ka Sing was meant to
be a shrine dedicated to Siva, one of the supreme Gods in
Hinduism. Others say that it was a competition between a man and a
woman to see who could build the monument first.
