    A performance of religious rites was played by King in here same as Phimai sanctuary. An ancient King was dressed at " Plabpla ",
    walked on the long " Laterite Path ",
    went through the " Naga Bridge " and go up the stairway,
    went to the " Main Sanctuary " for rites.

    So it is better to start a trip from "Plabpla" with imagination of a rites of ancient King.
