       Muang Tam stone castle Buri Ram


Muang Tam stone castle attracts tourists to Buri Ram

Scores of Thai and foreign tourists visited the ancient Khmer Muang Tam stone castle in Buri Ram province on Sunday. “Kam Truem,” a traditional folk dance of Thais of Cambodian descent, was performed for them at the place.

The Muang Tam stone castle was built in the 16th – 17th B.C. in Prakhon Chai district in Buri Ram province. The stone castle used to be a Hindu religious place of the ancient Khmer architecture. All five buildings of the castle are surrounded by a cloister decorated with elaborately-carved lintels and arches. The ponds surrounding the castles are decorated with five-headed Naga sculptures.

The tourists also watched the “Kam Truem” folk dance performed with the songs composed by Khmer people in Surin, Buri Ram and Si Sa Ket provinces. Some of the foreign tourists joined in the dance with the performers.
