Located 62 kilometers from Korat city, Prasat Nang Ram was constructed in 13th century during the reign of King Chaiworaman VII, who was the last in the line of the great emperors of Khmer. It was once called ‘Arokhayasan’ by the ancient Khmers which when translated to English means a hospital. This place has been considered to be under the support of Buddha Bhai-shajyaguru Vaiduryaprabha who is the Lord Master of healing and is known to heal humans from their bad karma and guilt as well as endows humans with good health.
