Khu Khat Khmer Site, Mahasarakham, Isaan

First of all "Thank You" to Asger Mollerup who does know things Khmer and Pheu Thai. And I look forward to more of his help in the future. Make sure to visit his website, linked to his name.
I had visited this area before, but not in relationship to things Khmer.
There is very little left of the original site . The site is not exactly a tourist site, but for those following the Khmer sies in the region I have listed it.
The site was declared an archaeological site, and it was/is also called Ku Kaeo - and that they from the architectual shape supposes that it is a Kkmer site dating to the 11th-12th century and that it is located in the middle of a horse-shoe shaped pond on both sides which apears to be mostly filled now.
