Located on Vichayen Road, approximately 200 meters from the railway station, Phra Prang Sam Yot is Lop Buri’s best known landmark and provincial symbol. A former Hindu shrine built in the 13th century in the classic Bayon style of Khmer architecture, the compound comprises three Prangs (towers) linked by corridors. The three laterite and sandstone spires, each decorated with classic stucco, are believed to have originally represented the Hindu Trimurti; Brahma (the Creator), Vishnu (the Preserver) and Shiva (the Destroyer).

During the reign of King Narai, the shrine was converted into a Buddhist temple and a brick hall was built in the east to house a grand U Thong-style Buddha image. Buddha images were later added to the two Prangs.

The temple is located on a mound on the west side of the railway, near San PhraKan, another shrine.

The temple is open from 6.00 am-6.00 pm from Wednesdays-Sundays. Admission is 30 baht.

Phra Prang Sam Yod (พระ ปรางค์ สาม ยอด) is a temple of Lopburi ( Thailand ) located on a hillock east of the railway track near San Phra Kan .

The temple is Bayon style ( twelfth - thirteenth centuries). It consists of three prangs ( prang sam means three prangs in Thai) connected to each other by a corridor, on a north-south axis. Inside the central prang is a platform on which stood a Buddha statue protected by a naga ; the ceiling was adorned with red stars. Inside the other two prangs were a statue of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and a statue of Prajnaparamita . On the east side, during the reign of Naraithe Great (1656-1688), was built a viharn where there is a statue of Buddha in meditation, Ayutthaya style (about 14th century ).

It is made of laterite decorated with stucco bas-reliefs of very good quality (there are still five-headed nāgas , kālas , elephants and a hamsa frieze). The balusters are decorated with rishis 1 sitting with knees in the air under the shelter of a Ruean Kaeo, which is typical of the Bayon style.

Phra Prang Sam Yod was originally a sanctuary of Mahayana Buddhism. It was then used as a Shivaite temple ( yonis and lingas were installed in each of the three prangs) on the death of King Jayavarman VII . Narai The Great restored the temple as a sanctuary of Theravada Buddhism , and built the brick viharn , whose doors and windows are a combination of Ayutthaya and European style.
