The modern San Phra Kan Shrine, against the ancient base of a Khmer tower.
Located in the middle of a traffic circle, oddly placed right next to the railway line, is the San Phra Kan shrine. The shrine is housed in a small modern (built in 1951) temple building erected hard up against the remains of an ancient prang dating from the sixth century.
The main statue in the shrine is a standing figure with four arms. It is probably meant to be Vishnu, although the Thais revere it as a type of Buddha image. There was a time when the temple grounds were filled with monkeys, but they've now been displaced by souvenir vendors. A few odd strays can still be found around the shrine, but most have moved across the street to the remains of the Prang Sam Yod temple.
