[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 less.

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 province.

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.

The two are reported to date back to 1017 1087 A.D.
