Prasat Sikhoraphum consists of 5 towers made of sandstone on a stone base. The tallest tower prang is located in the centre of the temple and is 32 metres tall. The temple was originally built as a Hindu temple although it was re-purposed for use as a Buddhist temple in the 16th Century. The most interesting features of the temple are the reliefs depicting Hindu deities Shiva, Brahma, Ganesh, Vishnu and several devas, who are benign mystical beings from Hindu mythology. Prasat Sikhoraphum receives relatively few visitors which makes the temple much more enjoyable for those who make the effort to go there.
