The Ancient Town of Si Thep is part of the Tentative list of Thailand in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Ancient Town of Si Thep was the site of a late prehistoric period community established around 1700 years ago, which grew into a significant Dvaravati center between the 6th and 11th century CE. Located on major trade routes and a major religious center, it then flourished under the strong influence of the ancient Khmer culture, until it declined during the late 13th century and was abandoned soon after. Monuments and archaeological evidence from the Inner and Outer Towns and surrounding areas date from all three periods.
