MUANG SINGH HISTORICAL PARK
Muang Singh Historical Park is surrounded by limestone hills on the bank of the Kwae Noi. The ancient city is almost square-shaped with moats, ramparts and laterite city walls. The wall is 880 meters long with gates on all four sides. There is an embankment of earth on each of the other inner sides of the wall; the outer sides are enclosed with seven moats and ramparts. These moats and ramparts were probably constructed for the water control system as well as for fortification. There are also six ponds in the ancient city, which were possibly used in the past. The castle architecture and sculptures are similar to those in the era of King Jayavarman VII (1177-1237) of Khmer. During the repair, fine art departments had found many significant art pieces that are similar to the ones in Cambodia. These statues are now kept in Bangkok National Museum. Reproductions of the statues are displayed at the castle.
