Sema and Korat: Ancient Khmer Twin Cities

The ruins of many ancient Khmer stone monuments and the ancient cities of Sema and Korat (aka Nakhon Raj or Khorakha Pura) are located about 30 kilometers west of Korat near Sung Noen. The ancient cities were abandoned with the fall of the Khmer empire and were consolidated and moved to present day Nakhon Ratchasima by King Narai in the 17th century.
