Prasat Muang Sing Historical Park in Kanchanaburi

Prasat Muang Sing Historical Park

Prasat Muang Singh is a Khmer town in Kanchanaburi province. It is around 45 kilometers from Kanchanaburi city. Built around the 12th century on the Khwae Noi River, the site was most likely an outpost of the Khmer 'Muang Singh' empire that protected the Khmer frontier. It was also likely a centre for trade. Built of 'laterite', it is a large place - around 30 acres - and is not as well preserved as other Khmer sites in Thailand, despite being restored.

There are 4 mains groups of ruins and only the main buildings and some smaller buildings are fully visible. Prasat Muang Singh is the main shrine and the central focal point of the site. The site is though littered with smaller shrines containing various artifacts (some reproductions) and there a couple of museums.

The museums provide evidence of the area's inhabitation before the arrival of the Khmer and examples of bronze utensils and tools dating from the Neolithic era. This is a great place to wander around - the grounds are tidy and attractive with trees and flowers, and although there are restaurants and stalls, the site has a very authentic, non-commercial feel about it - worth a visit.

Details: The site is open 08:00 a.m. - 04:30 p.m. daily and admission is 40 Baht.
Tel: +66 3458 5052 to 3, +66 3451 1200, +66 6451 2500

How to get there: You can get to the site by train. The journey takes an hour and the fare is 10 Baht. Trains leave at 06:10 a.m., 10:54 a.m. and 02:25 p.m. and you should head to Tha Kilen. You will probably be best taking a Tuk-Tuk from the station to the site.
