ROUTE 7: NAKHON RATCHASIMA: PRASAT HIN PHIMAI CASTLE, SAI NGAM (BANYAN TREE)

 

1. PRASAT HIN PHIMAI Prasat Phimai is located in Phimai, Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) province and has a pleasant location, with the river Moon flowing its many branches around the town. Construction of Prasat Phimai took place between the 11th-13th centuries A.D.  The grounds of Prasat Phimai are spacious and well kept. The principal tower (prang) is surrounded by galleries on all sites. Possibly initially built dedicated to Hindu Gods, later Prasat Hin Phimai functioned as a Mahayana Buddhist sanctuary.
Phimai houses also a very interesting National Museum, where many of the lintels, found at Prasat Phimai and surrounding temples, are being displayed, some in stunning beauty after restoration. Close to the city center is a giant banyan tree, situated in a pond. The single tree rather looks like a giant forest.

 

 

2. SAI NGAM: A Banyan Tree reproduces by sending tendrils down from its branches which can take root and form a new tree. Often, as is the case with Sai Ngam, the new trunks stay connected to the parent so that you have one tree, one life, with many trunks, many branches, many leaves.
