Prasat Muang Tam (Thai: ปราสาทเมืองต่ำ, rtgs: Prasat Mueang Tam, 'lowland castle') is a Khmer temple in Prakhon Chai district, Buri Ram Province, Thailand. It is primarily in the Khleang and Baphuon styles, which dates its primary phases of construction to the late 10th and early 11th centuries. The primary deity was Shiva, although Vishnu was also worshipped there. A small baray, probably contemporaneous with the temple, lay to the east, while a later, larger baray survives further north between Muang Tam and Phanom Rung.

  • Der Prasat Mueang Tam (Thai: ปราสาทเมืองต่ำ, auch kurz: Muang Tam; etwa: „Palast der unteren Stadt“) ist ein Tempelbezirk der Khmer im heutigen Thailand, etwa 50 Kilometer südöstlich der Provinzhauptstadt Buri Ram gelegen. (de)
  • Prasat Muang Tam est un temple khmer du XIe siècle situé dans la province de Buriram, Thaïlande. Il se situe non loin du Prasat Phnom Rung. Il a été restauré par le Département des Beaux Arts de Thaïlande. Pendant la restauration, d'importantes découvertes ont été faites, dont deux statues visibles au Musée national de Bangkok. Pour l'instant aucune inscription n'a été trouvée, ce qui rend difficile de replacer cet ensemble dans l'histoire de la région. Le style des linteaux permet de dater le temple : la plupart sont d'un style mélangeant le Khleang et le Baphuon et datent donc très probablement des Xe - XIe siècles. Ce temple était dédié à Shiva -un grand linga occupait le sanctuaire central et un fronton de la tour nord-est montre Shiva et Parvati sur Nandin- mais on a également découvert des fragments d'une statue de Vishnou.

  • Prasat Muang Tam (Thai: ปราสาทเมืองต่ำ, rtgs: Prasat Mueang Tam, 'lowland castle') is a Khmer temple in Prakhon Chai district, Buri Ram Province, Thailand. It is primarily in the Khleang and Baphuon styles, which dates its primary phases of construction to the late 10th and early 11th centuries. The primary deity was Shiva, although Vishnu was also worshipped there. Like most Khmer temples, Muang Tam is oriented towards the east. It has a flat concentric plan, with a central sanctuary and two libraries surrounded successively by an inner enclosure, ponds, and an outer enclosure. The ponds between the enclosures are an unusual feature of the temple, as is the central sanctuary, which is not elevated and has its towers arranged in rows of three and two rather than in a quincunx. All the towers except the central one have been restored. Kala are particularly prominent in the lintels of the temple. They are the best available aid in dating the structure, but the mix of styles (Khleang and Baphuon) makes accurate dating impossible. Several of the lintels on the outer gopuras are unfinished. A small baray, probably contemporaneous with the temple, lay to the east, while a later, larger baray survives further north between Muang Tam and Phanom Rung. (en)
