Beginning with the 11th century A.D. Phimai was possibly the most important
northwestern base of the Khmer empire. To this day the town continues to maintain
its typical rectangular grid-like layout of streets and its numerous water reservoirs
remain well intact.
The fortress-like town wall encloses an oblong-shaped old town approximately
1700 x 3000 feet in circumference and is surrounded
by the Moon, Khem and Chakkarat Rivers.
Beyond, the town has grown into a district center of modern appearance
containing hospitals, markets of various sizes, governmental services
and a palatial court house, with approximately 10,000 inhabitants in the town itself.
