Famous four unusual architectural style, ancient Sema stones ใบเสมา, location on top of an extinct volcano Khao Phra Angkarn เขาพระอังคาร. Other names and spellings Wat Khao Phra Angkarn / Angkhan.

Location:
14.5347402,102.8341074 = 14°32'05.1"N 102°50'02.8"E
18 km by car south-east of Nang Rong bus station.

Directions: 
There is no public transport. From Nang Rong bus station, I hired car for 500 Baht return (go 10:02-30, stay there one hour, return 11:31-12:02). Inquire about round trips Nang Rong - Phanom Rung - Mueang Tam - Nang Rong: 800 Baht.

Didn't spot any locals there, but two other white tourists.
