It’s believed that the temple was built by King Jayavarman VII of the Khmer Empire, and initially was used as hospital or Arokayasala.
Prasat Khon Buri is a 800 years-old Khmer sanctuary built entirely with Laterite blocks and frames made from sandstone, located in the enclave of the Nakhonthamkhosit Wittayakhan School. It consists of a single tower facing east, a gateway or Gopura, and a library or Bannalai on the north with a openness to the west. The perimeter of the complex is surrounded by a wall.
The temple has been recently restored by the Fine Arts Department of Thailand.
