 Details : The Charm of Stone Sanctuaries

The stone sanctuaries found in Thailand are architectural structures influenced by the Khmer art style. They are generally made of sand stone that is red or off-white in colour. These places once served as religious sanctuaries for Brahmin ceremonies performed to respect the gods and they also served as residences for monarchs.

Design 1 : Ta Muean Sanctuary, built of laterite, is believed to have been one of the seventeen residences of King Chaiya Vorammann VII. The place consists of a single Prang structure and there is a long gallery linking it with the frontal part.

Design 2 : Ta Muean Thom Sanctuary, is a building complex consisting of three Prang towers made of sandstone. The two Vihara buildings on the compound are made of laterite. This was a place for religious ceremonies. The principle Prang structure, which is the largest, was built to cover the natural stone which was carved into a Shiva Lingam.

Design 3 : Ta Muean Tot Sanctuary, originally serving as a medical clinic, is made of sandstone and laterite. It is square in shape and decorated with niche at the front.

Design 4 : Sadok kok Thom Sanctuary or Mueang Phrao Sanctury, made of sandstone and laterite, is decorated with exquisite motifs. Its interior plan was designed to portray the Universe, depicting the Sumeru Mount in the centre, surrounded by waters, to indicate that this is the most scared of places.
