        Prasat Hin Muang Tam is just 8 kilometers from the famous Prasat Phanom Rung Historical Park. This temple can be accessed via a concrete road that runs through scenic and beautiful paddy fields.

        The temple is primarily built in the Khleang and Baphuon style of architecture. These two styles of architecture were prevalent during the late 10th century and early 11th century. The main deity in the temple is the Hindu God of Death, Shiva. However, evidence shows that Lord Vishnu was also worshipped in the temple.

        The temple has 5 pagodas, which are surrounded by last rite ponds. The pagodas are built on a single laterite foundation. At the corner of each pond is a five-headed Naga, which spreads to all the four directions of the pond. The sandstone lintel and doorway of the temple are carved beautifully.

        The temple is surrounded by a compound, which is encircled by a crooked terrace and last rite wall. There is no evidence as to who built this temple but there is an ongoing argument that it was built for the Hindu community.

        There is a place for the visitors to park their car and in front of the car park is small shop which also doubles as a museum displaying books and photographs of Khmer architecture. You can also visit the nearby local houses, which are inhabited by a community known as Ban Cho-ra-ke Mak.

        The entrance fee to see Prasat Hin Muang Tam is 30 Baht for foreigners and 10 Baht for Thais. The temple is open daily from 6.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m.
