Prasat Nong Hong 

        Prasat Nong Hong is a small archaeological site situated in Ban Non Din Daeng. The archaeological site is worth a visit because of the uniqueness it presents. The site has three prangs made from brick and all the prangs sit on a single laterite base.

 

        The prangs are square shaped and have 12-indented corners. The middle prang is bigger that the adjacent ones. All the prangs have just one entrance facing East. Prasat Nong Hong dates back to the 16th Buddhist century.

        Based on what one can see today, it is believed that temple must have had many beautiful lintels. The lintels on the northern prang shown a carved image of Hindu God Vishnu riding on Garuda above Kala's face, who is holding a garland. The other two prangs, the one in the center and the one facing south, have similar lintels but with different depictions. The prang in the middle shows a carved image Hindu God Indra rising an Erawan elephant, while the one in the south shows Hindu God Shiva riding his famous bull, Nandi.

        Right in front of the central prag is a walkway with staircases in front and on both sides. All buildings are surrounded by a laterite wall and u-shaped moat. In addition, there is a library that faces the southern prang.

        For those of you who are wondering how to get there, just find your way to Lam Nang Rong Dam and you will find Prasat Nong Hong is situated along the very edge of the dam.
