Ku Ban Non Ku Khmer Ruin

All that's left of Ku Ban Non Ku (กู่บ้านโนนกู่) are some laterite blocks that have been piled up to make an 8x16-meter platform for a four-meter tall Buddha image built in 1995. The only estimate for an age is late-10th to early-13th century, though because of the location, later dates are most likely.

Two of the small stairs each include a broken sandstone slab and these appear that they could be from bai sema boundary stones, and so they're probably Dvaravati era, not Khmer.
