Located close to the Railway station 3 min walk but you also have a parking place very close to this place, and from this parking place you also can visit Phra Prang Sam Yot walking distance from this place.
Khmer ruins right across from the railway station in this interesting little town north of Bangkok en route to Chiang Mai. The Khmer influence here is evident from the proximity to Cambodia next door and this place was one of the old capitals of Siam.
Nice and slightly older than the other temple options. Worth having a local for a bit of history (12-13th C). Pretty well restored and inexpensive to visit.
Apparently, this is an infrequently visited temple, which set over seven acres, has a number of very interesting sights. To name a few of the attractions, there are chedi’s, relief stuccos, a viharn, and an ubosot. Its biggest drawback is that most of the signs explaining each of the sights (only in Thai), are so badly faded, as to be... 更多
For me this was the most interesting as the ground covers quite a large area. It is a ruined 13th century monastery but there is a lot to see and you can climb up and take some great pictures.

Came here right before going to Sam Yod... What very different experiences! No monkeys here, and hardly any people either- I think there were six of us altogether, and the place is large enough that I only saw them from afar. It was a nice, serene stroll amongst lovely ruins.
This temple is very big and a must visit place of the town. Opposite to the train station. However, the information on the sign is faded and have to get info from the brochure or other sources.
After coming from the monkey temple up the road we thought this would be a similar size. We spent at least thirty minutes walking around taking pictures of the ruins and headless buddha statues. Not much shade in the 40c sweltering heat but still nice, only 50baht to get in and just across the road from the train station. Recommend... 更多
Superb. You can see different Chedi and Prang, and the architectonical styles varying from early Mon/Burmese style to late Ayutthaya style, through typical Angkor style. No monkeys or stray dogs luckily, but the competent authorities should definitely take care of renovating the very old and somewhere missing explicative panels, possibly providing some English lines.
It's great to come here as you can explore the ruins for free. There was also a festival/ ritual held here (I am not entirely sure what it was) in the evening which was a great experience. Plus there are no monkeys (living in Lopburi you can come to hate them)
