This medium-sized site located in the town of Sikhoraphum features five restored towers on a common laterite base.  The central tower is somewhat taller than the other four.  Although the original lintels have been replaced with replicas there is an assemblage of large sandstone bowls with naga heads that appear to be originals.  This picturesque site is in a well-maintained city park which includes a bathroom.  A moat surrounds most of the site.  There is no causeway which seems unusual considering the size and elaborate nature of the structures.  There is a small guard booth on the site and foreigners may be charged admission when it is manned, which is not always the case.  The site is easily accessible and will usually have a number of local visitors on any given day, especially the weekends.
