Si Thep Historical Park is an interesting source of knowledge on ancient remains of Phetchabun, covering the area of Si Thep Ancient Town, which was originally called “Mueang Aphai Sali”, believed to have been constructed during the prosperous time of the Ancient Khmer Empire. It is at least 1,000 years old.
Si Thep Historical Park covers an area of roughly 5 square km and has remnants of walls and moats.
For those that are interested in ancient Thai history this would be an interesting place to visit but again I would not come to this area solely to see this attraction.
Although it is only thirty kilometers from where we are based, as yet we have not taken the camera for a full photo session.
Below are just a small number of pics taken on the mobile phone during a quick visit to one of the ruins in the park.
If you do happen to visit this particular site, please take off your shoes before entering the building as this is the ruin of an ancient temple and therefore is still considered sacred by the local Thai people
