Prasat Ta Muen Thom (Khmer: ប្រាសាទតាមាន់ធំ, Thai: ปราสาทตาเมือนธม, rtgs: Prasat Ta Muean Thom) is a Khmer temple in Thailand located in the province of Surin, a few dozen meters from the border with Cambodia's Oddar Meanchey Province. Its Khmer name translates literally to "Great Temple of Grandfather Chicken". It lies not far from two related temples in a densely forested area where access is difficult on one of the passes through the Dangrek Mountains. Prasat Ta Muen Toch ("Minor Temple of Grandfather Chicken"), the hospital chapel, lies two and half kilometers to the northwest and just 300 meters beyond that is the rest house chapel, Prasat Ta Muen ("Temple of Grandfather Chicken"). During the 1980s-90s, when the Khmer Rouge controlled the area, the temples in the region were looted by

dbo:abstract
  • Le Prasat Ta Muen Thom est un temple khmer situé en Thaïlande, dans la province de Surin, à quelques dizaines de mètres de la frontière avec le Cambodge. Il se trouve non loin des Prasat Ta Muen et Prasat Ta Muen Toch, sur l'un des cols des monts Dângrêk (ou Dongrak), dans une forêt dense, dont l'accès est interdit, la zone n'ayant pas été totalement déminée. De nombreuses pièces d'architecture ont été volées par les khmers rouges, et plus particulièrement les sculptures de valeur, de façon parfois brutale en utilisant de la dynamite. Le nom de Prasat Ta Muen Thom vient du nom du village voisin de Ta Miang et signifie le grand château (des dieux) ou temple de Ta Miang; de la même façon, le nom du Prasat Ta Muen Toch signifie le petit château (des dieux) ou temple de Ta Miang. La proximité de ces trois prasat (Prasat Ta Muen, Prasat Ta Muen Thom et Prasat Ta Muen Toch) -quelques centaines de mètres-, semble montrer que ce lieu était une halte importante sur une route majeure de l'empire khmer, la route d'Angkor à Phimai.

During the 1980s-90s, when the Khmer Rouge controlled the area, the temples in the region were looted by the Khmer Rouge to finance their guerrilla campaign. Many architectural pieces and original sculptures were stolen, sometimes detached using dynamite, and smuggled out of Cambodia or sold on the black market. These three temples, all within a few hundred meters of each other, formed a complex which was an important stop on a major route of the Khmer Empire, the Ancient Khmer Highway from its capital at Angkor to its major administrative center in the northwest, Phimai (now in Thailand).
