Huay Tap Tan Khmer Ruins or Ban Prasart Khmer Ruins
Ban Prasart Khmer Ruins (Huay Tap Tan Khmer Ruins or Non Tat Khmer Ruins) is an ancient Khmer castle located within Wat Prasat Panaram in Ban Prasat, Prasat sub-district, Huay Tap Tan district, Sri Saket. It is believed to be constructed around 16 B.E. as a residence for “Trimurti” according to the Bramanism. The place consists of 3 brick stupas on laterite base aligned in North-South direction facing the East. They stand inside laterite walls with arch gates. The carved lintels are seen in front of the southern stupa.
The middle stupa is bigger than the other two with a lower roof. The stupa is in square shape with the size of an angle reduced. The only entrance is located in the East direction with sandstone doorframe and the lintel above the form.
The other two stupas have the same size. The entrance doors of these stupas are packed with bricks closing all the space. The churning of the sea of milk is depicted in the South direction.
It is believed to grant the wish to those who worship it. That is why local people and visitors come and pay respect to this carved lintel especially on the 15th day of the 3rd waxing moon where the ceremony is held.
