Sirindhorn Museum and Phu Kum Khao Dinosaur Excavation Site

Reviewed By Prawet J - Washington DC, District of Columbia

The Sirindhorn Museum and Phu Kum Khao is located about 25 miles from the city of Kalasin. It is also based know as the Dinosaur Museum but actually it is also a known as a research and studies of dinosaur. The exhibit building provide impressive documentations and dinosaur fossils (largest in Southeast Asia). The excavation site is located next to a temple on the hill. Frankly I enjoyed more at the excavation sites and model dinosaurs in the jungles. Down side, travelers must have own transportation to get there but it is worth getting there. Nice place to learn about human development. If you are up for it, you can walk up the Naga steps to the top of the hill with the sign. Also great place to take kids to visit.

Phu Faek Forest Park

Reviewed By Thaihouse-guesthouse - Mukdahan

Not far from kuchinari is phu faek forest. Phu faek is the home to a variety of creatures and fauna. It is also where you will find the imprint in a ancient stream of a large dinosaur footprint. Not one but a whole series of prints. When we do this tour we normally end up at the dino museum (jurrasic park isaan) a very interesting day in a beautiful forest.

Phrathat Yakhu

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

This chedi is found in the former area of the ancient city of Muang Fa Daet, which wasn probably one of the largest settlements in Isaan (Northeast Thailand) during the Dvaravati period. The earliest version of this chedi dates back to around the 8th or 9th centuries, but it was substantially renovated during the Ayutthaya period to take on a more Thai appearance. Today it is the most important ancient monument in the province of Kalasin and remains an object of devotion. There are also many lesser ruins and earthworks in the area, including carved boundary markers. Overall, this is one for the history buff only though.

Phutthasathan Phu Po

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

This hill is one of the historic Buddhist sites in Kalasin province. It was once home to a small community of forest monks who lived here, far away from society, during the 6th to 10th centuries during the Dvaravati era. They have left two ancient carvings of Reclining Buddhas from the 8th or 9th centuries, one on the lower slopes and one just below the peak. They are covered in gold leaf now and remain objects of veneration. The Buddha on the top is regarded as artistically superior. The views from the top are excellent and the climb up isn't too taxing. There are clumps of bamboo and wildflowers and butterflies to enjoy.

Pha Sawoei

Reviewed By PORhibido - Krungthep Mahanakorn

Pha Sawoei is a rest area on Route 213 (Kalasin-Sakon Nakhon) that besides a hideous dinosaur statue offers little for tourists. Locals use it as a "public" toilet, ironic given that the king whom they revere picnicked here in 1954, thus the name Sawoei (a royal term for eating). Skip it unless you like the smell of urine.

Phraya Chaisunthon Monument (Chao Somphamit)

Reviewed By Prawet J - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Unless you are a history bub and is interesting in the birth of Kalasin province, the Statue of Phraya Chaisunthon is another statue/monument of any cities. Based on the history, he was the last ruler of the city (12th one) before the the country and cities in Thailand changed the governing body to city and municipals. Anyone has the last name of Na Kalasin is related to Chao Somphamit or Phraya Chaisunthon here. The Monument is situated downtown near the general hospital and the City Hall. When you go to Kalasin and have some time while walking in the inner city, have your picture taken and read about a piece of the city (if you can read Thai).
