Thailand: Ancient Temple Ruins

Prang Sam Yot

Thailand is a country with many beautiful attractions for tourists and residents alike. Thousands of people from all over the world come to this country to see the ancient temple ruins in Thailand. These ruins were built hundreds of years ago by very old cultures. Today, some of the ancient temple ruins in Thailand have been restored and some have not.

One of the most famous ancient temple ruins in Thailand is Prang Sam Yot. This is a Khmer temple that is now inhabited by Macaque monkeys who spend their days swinging around the trees. Some people enjoy seeing the monkeys, but others are more wary about being bitten by one of the animals. Every year, the city holds a feast to honor the Macaques, and everyone in town shows up.

Other famous ancient temple ruins in Thailand include the Wat Chedi Luang temple, which was destroyed sometime in the 1500s by an earthquake. It has since been partially restored, but most of the temple is still crumbling. Even so, tourists travel far distances to gaze upon this wonder. The Emerald Buddha used to inhabit the temple for decades, but is now in Wat Pra Kaeo. These ruins hold a lot of character and history of Thailand.
