Hindu Imagery At Panom Rung
Not much remains of the carved imagery at this site. It's all Hindu, that was the hot set up around here before Buddhism took hold. (And it remains in the background, peeking through frequently in the more recent Thai Buddhist imagery.) So it's all Shiva this and Rama that, and the ever popular Krishna, stories of all those Gods having fights over essentially nothing and then riding off on a bull with their consort.
A lot of nice schoolchildren were visiting while I was there. They brightened up the pictures considerably.
