Wat Kamphaeng Laeng 

Khmer prang of Wat Kamphaeng Laeng

Wat Kamphaeng Laeng is a very different temple in Phetchaburi. It is the biggest and oldest historical site of the city featuring a Khmer prang from the 12th century. It was initially a Hindu place of worship, which was later converted to a Buddhist sanctuary. As a Hindu shrine there would have been 5 prangs in one compound of which three are still standing today.
