Roi Et Travel Guide :
| Roi Et Province is known for its beautiful temples and historical monuments. For years the province has been attracting tourists who visit Thailand and are interested in learning about history and culture of the different regions.
If you are going to visit Roi Et Province, which is located in northeastern Thailand, then you should visit Ku Kasing. This is a Khmer ruin and you can see three beautiful pagodas resting on the same foundation. The foundation is made from sandstone. In addition, you can see 2 viharas located in the front, which are rectangular in shape.
Ku Kasing is surrounded by a wall, which has four entrances facing north, south, east and west. Just outside the wall, you can see a horseshoe shaped moat.
The main pagoda is situated between two other pagodas, which are smaller than the main building. This pagoda is facing east and has a balcony and a long room. The room has three entrances which all lead to the balcony. One entrance is in the front while the other two are at the side. The single base for the pagodas is tiered and decorated with lotuses.
Ku Kasing is believed to have been constructed between 1017 and 1087 A.D. for worshipping the Hindu god Shiva. This is evident from the phallic symbol, known as linga, present in the main building. In addition, you can see the lintels decorated with Lord Shiva mounted on Erawan, a 3-headed elephant. The main gable displays a carving of Lord Indra, another Hindu god, mounted on his 3-headed elephant.
