via Bangkok Post, 17 June 2020: Si Thep and Phanom Rung Historical Parks being mapped and scanned for future conservation work and nomination into Unesco World Heritage.
The Fine Arts Department has worked with a research team from the Historic Site Restoration for the Foundation of Sustainable Conservation project to conduct a structural analysis of two historical parks to be nominated as Unesco World Heritage sites.
The parks are Sri Thep (also spelt Si Thep) Historical Park in Phetchabun province and Phanom Rung Historical Park in Buri Ram.
Sri Thep Historical Park contains 1,300-year-old religious monument built during the Dvaravati period (Sixth-11th centuries). Covering an area of 4.7km², the park houses more than 40 ruins including a grand stupa called Khao Khlang Nok and another smaller stupa called Khao Khlang Nai. The two ruins are the highlights of the park.
